From confusion to clarity

21 year old Reena (name changed) who belongs to Patna in Bihar has been visually impaired since birth. Her early years were spent at Antarjyoti Balika Vidyalaya in Patna. Later she moved to Delhi and enrolled in a school for blind girls at Vikaspuri. After graduating from school she went on to pursue a 3 month computer course at Bharti Kalyan Netrahin Parishad.

Like most girls her age Reena too is filled with multiple dreams and ambitions. However, unable to think things through in a clear fashion she decided to get in touch with Eyeway. She shared with our counselors how confused she was.  While on the one hand she thought it might be interesting to record books for the visually impaired on the other hand she also felt drawn to music.  Our counselor helped her understand that she could record books and pursue music, but what was most important was for her to continue with her education. They told her that pursuing an undergraduate degree would be the first step she should take. This would open up many more possibilities for her future.

2 months later we received a call from Reena telling us that she was pursuing her BA Programme from Satyawati College in Delhi University. We hope Reena is successful in her endeavors and in time finds her calling.
