Amudha did not believe that anything limited her.
Amudha’s story of strength and hope had an unbelievable start. When she was born, her parents were disappointed to have had a girl. Since she was also visually impaired, they thought that she would become too much of a burden and left her with her grandfather.
Amudha’s grandfather believed in her. He did not think that being a girl or being visually impaired determined her future. He motivated her to stay in school and to continue secondary education at The Indian Association for the Blind.
IAB gave Amudha the chance to learn the same syllabus as children across India. She completed class 12 with their help and went on to get a Bachelors and Masters degree in History, followed by a B.Ed from Stephens.
Today Amudha is a teacher in a government school in Tamil Nadu. She is a pillar of strength for her family and a source of inspiration for many around her. She motivates those who think that life is unfair by showing them how she could change her story with the right help.
