Education is the foundation on which a person can build their life. But for rare individuals, being able to go to school or college is not a guarantee.
Often people with rare diseases have to give up on the dream of education because of challenges that able bodied people cannot even think of. In this episode, a 45-year-old woman from Chennai – Sujatha – offers insight on how she was forced to power through discrimination and a chronic illness to realise her dreams. She has Pseudoachondroplasia, an extremely rare form of dwarfism. She is also an MPhil.
