Maria Zia has a BS Hons’ from Pakistan in Media and Communication Studies. She is currently working in a national development organization, Hashoo Foundation as Project Officer – Inclusive Initiatives. She is a visually challenged person due to retinal disorder, which was diagnosed when she was just three months old. Despite her disability challenges and belonging to the rural remote area of the country, she did not lose my ambitions and hopes and kept on developing herself through different sources. She is among those few luckiest PWDs who studied in mainstream education since Montessori up to the university. She has professional experience of working with organizations like Sightsavers International, Handicap International, and South Asian Disability Forum. She has recently launched my start-up “Digital Inclusive Library” which aims to provide audio-books of all literature to the blind.
