How Did She Start Beyond Braille?
She had the idea for creating an illustration picture series that would cater to the visually impaired community nine years ago. However, the journey from conceptualisation to the final prototype and testing phase was a lengthy and challenging one. It took years of hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to bring the Beyond Braille brand to life, and it was finally launched in March 2019. It gives me immense pride and joy to say that since then, Beyond Braille has been making a significant impact on the lives of visually impaired individuals. (International Women's Day 2023)
