Ramya Miriyala, the entrepreneur, is dedicated to giving a voice to deaf women
Ramya Miriyala is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Deaf Enabled Foundation.
The foundation is working towards empowering people with hearing disabilities, especially women.
Ramya believes that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can live their lives better once they learn how to communicate.
Ramya too is fluent in sign language. She learned it as a child as she has many family members who are deaf.
Deaf women face more challenges when they step out to make a life for themselves.
They find it harder to share their feelings, experiences, and thoughts with everyone because of a communication barrier.
Through the Deaf Enabled Foundation, Ramya is trying to help deaf women realize their potential and strength.
She conducts Women Leadership Talks and special celebrations to help them gain self-confidence.
The foundation also comes to the aid of deaf women who face harassment at the workplace. It helps them by providing sign language interpreters so they can share their experiences.
