Alyssa told BuzzFeed News that when they're out at restaurants, usually she or one of her family members reads the menu out to Annalicia who is blind.

“She just orders chicken and fries,” Alyssa said.

“We were all surprised because nobody has asked us this before,” Alyssa said. “I was excited that she was able to read her menu and order her own food.”

And while Annalicia was surprised, too, she told BuzzFeed News, “My first thought was, 'Let me see what they have!'”

Annalicia, who is about to turn 18 in April, said that she normally doesn't have to think about “the variety of food that's out there.”

“I was like, 'What should I order now?'” she said.
