Sheikha Al Jassasi is the first visually impaired Omani to earn a Master’s degree in business administration from the UK’s University of Bedfordshire. Al Jassasi was determined to achieve her ambitions and quests of pursuing higher education and launching her own business in the face of unimaginable obstacles. Growing up, she always felt that she was different from her peers and people treated her differently. However, thanks to the unconditional love and support of her family, she was able to turn her disability into a triumph for herself and for the visually impaired community in her society. Her latest project, Podcast Noor, supports the visually impaired community and provides them with the necessary tools to break barriers.
