Deaf Punjabi youth represents India in Global IT Challenge in Vietnam
18-year-old Yashveer Goyal, a deaf youth from Bathinda in Punjab, has just come back after representing India at the Global IT Challenge organised at Vietnam from 18 September to 22 September.
Yashveer is the only youngster from Punjab to take part in the competition.
Earlier in July, Yashveer had secured first place in the hearing impairment category in the Global IT Challenge for Youth with Disabilities held by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment at National Institute of Technology (NIT) Kurukshetra.
Yashveer is deaf since birth and is good in academics. He has learnt computer software on his own without any formal training.
Yashveer's father said that when children with disabilities are encouraged, they can achieve a lot more than children with no disabilities. He said children like Yashveer do not need sympathy but equal opportunities to show their skills.
