Qudsiya Naqui is an attorney in Washington D.C. specializing in immigration policy and access to justice. She was born with leber congenital amaurosis, a degenerative condition that affects the retina and worsens with age. In this episode Qudsiya shares the story of how she lost her vision and learned to not only live in the world around her, but begin to demand changes to make the world conform to her lifestyle and needs. Her story is inspiring and an important insight into how inequality isn't just about resources, social power or political parity - but also about designing an inclusive world for all people. A big thank you to TechChange for their generous support - we record these episodes in their studios, using their equipment and with help from their staff. Check out how they have leveraged tech for social good for the past decade. Happy holidays and a happy new year!
