Story of an young aspiring Visually Impaired beneficiary..

Roshni, 29yrs old, from Mangalore is completely blind by birth. Her father is a farmer and mother is a homemaker. She has 2 elder sisters who are married.

Roshni studied in a special school in Bengaluru till grade 7. Thereafter, she joined a mainstream sighted school to complete 10th grade. Then she moved back home to Mangalore and completed 12th grade and degree through correspondence.

Roshni was introduced to Braille in school and is very comfortable with it. She also learnt basic computer in school. When a friend told her about Mitra Jyothi, Roshni jumped at the opportunity to learn something new and joined the 3 month Computer course here. Also utilized the tenure well to fill her thrust towards reading new books. She read many books from Mitra Jyothi braille library and impressed with the computer literacy through screen readers book so much.

Roshni did not let her disability define her. She worked on her various interests to give another dimension to her personality. Being fond of music, she not only sings well but also learnt to play piano in school. Roshni loves to play with clay and give shape to her imagination by making clay flowers, candle stands etc. She doesn’t miss an opportunity to read a good book when she comes across one. Growing up with two elder sisters and in hostel with friends, Roshni picked up hairstyling as a hobby too.

After completing the computer course at Mitra Jyothi, Roshni aspires to take up a government job. She is sure that she can take up competitive exams with the support of books from Mitra Jyothi library.
