An interest around issues of disability and raising awareness, proved to be a recipe for success for Ms Ntombizodwa Chiya, who graduated with honours in bachelor of education at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN).

Chiya was born blind, much like her father, aunts and her partially sighted nephew. Although Chiya never had sight, it did not deter her from studying for her degree. She owed much of her success to hard work, perseverance, strong will and determination.
