Beno Zephine is a 25 yr old graduate from Chennai and she is all set to join the prestigious Indian Foreign Service. She is the first completely blind official in the organization. Hurray!

She says: “I am really thankful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking this big decision. I am told the IFS were not identified for the blind with certain exceptions made for candidates with low vision. I am grateful that in order to give me the assignment, the central government has modified some parameters”

Till now she had been working as a probationary officer with the State Bank of India.

Talking about her inspiration, Beno says: “Parents, especially mother, read a lot of books and newspapers to me.”

Most importantly, it was her will power that made her believe that disability isn’t a barrier: “It is vitally important to discard disability from the mind.”
