Biographical Profile
I was born totally blind in 1989. I started my education from a blind school in mardan and did my matriculation from Qandeel school for the blind in Rawal-Pindi in 2007. After which I decided to get education from main stream educational institutions. While I was doing my graduation, I realised to have an online forum which could help the visually impaired students to have access to the required books/research articles both for academic and pleasure reading purposes. I contacted my friends and in January 2013 we created a forum named accessible books community (ABC). Later on we replaced its name to Masiha Educational Welfare Society (MASEWS) in febrary 2014. This is also an online forum with hundreds of members from different parts of the world. MASEWS provides different services to visually impaired indivisuals such as books/articles in different formats, career counselling, online courses based on braille, computer and English language and writers to visually impaired students in case of possibility.
