Gujarat's Shruti Singh is India's first deaf-blind physiotherapist
23-year-old Shruti Singh is India's first deaf-blind physiotherapist. She lost her hearing after birth and has only 10% vision, limited to 3 to 4 inches ahead.
She can speak fluently and has worked hard to achieve her dream of becoming a physiotherapist. Shruti did a diploma in physiotherapy from a school at the Blind People's Association (BPA).
She could not hear the lectures but read the text and got help from fellow students.
She now works at the physiotherapy centre for children with disabilities.
Shruti’s dedication and focus is inspiring for others.
