Video clip: Maria’s explains how her guide dog helps her negotiate her way to work.

In the morning, a taxi takes me to railway station. And railway station in [place] and in Oxford, they know us. And it's amazing that I ask him to find the steps, he does find the steps. We go upstairs. He knows where to take me. He knows when the train is coming, he gets up so I know that the train is coming. We jump on the train, and he always finds me the seat. If there is no free seat, he stays sort of by the door, so I know that the train is full. The same when I get to Oxford. Sometimes I take the taxi, sometimes if there is plenty of light, I walk. And he takes me from A to B, and a hundred percent that I'm going to be safe. So yeah.
