Ethan Zachary Scott is colourblind, so he doesn’t see the world the same as his friends. Sometimes, when he sees green it looks brown or yellow, and when he sees pink, it looks silver or blue.

His friends decided to surprise him with EnChroma glasses and for the first time, he was able to see the colour purple, and experience the colours green and pink. Even seeing the grass outside was a new experience.
