She started working with the hearing and speech impaired community from 2010 and It has been 18 years now. she also works as an interpreter for various associations and has been volunteering with organizations across Tamil Nadu who actively working in this space.
She believes hearing or speech impaired is more challenging than being blind. Not being able to express what one is thinking, or not being able to know more about what is happening around oneself through questioning and dialogue can be extremely hard.
It might seem like their world is much quieter and calmer than ours, but they live in a world of silence and are often unaware of what is happening around them. This is the reason she chooses to work with them and will continue to empower these individuals.
