Losing my sight ‘gave me vision’

Yetnebersh Nigussie is an Ethiopian lawyer and campaigner who lost her sight at the age of five. She says being blind saved her from an early marriage and allowed her to attend school and university.
She is now being recognised by the World Economic Forum as one of their Young Global Leaders for 2020, for her work fighting for universal access to education for all children with disabilities.-  BBC Radio-  https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p086bflt
