Meet Vidhya, a visually impaired girl who topped her post graduation exam
23-year-old Vidhya Y, a visually impaired girl from Bengaluru has ranked first in her class in MSc Digital Society from the International Institute of Information Technology Bengaluru (IIITB).
When Vidhya was a child, her dream was to become a doctor. However, she was not able to choose science in school due to her disability and instead, she chose commerce.
Vidhya faced many problems when she asked for extra time for her maths exam and was told by the officials that she should have chosen humanities subject.
So now Vidhya plans to build technology to make learning maths and science easier for visually impaired primary school students. She will slowly make these subjects accessible for higher class students as well.
