An Inspiration For All Blind Students – Haleema Sarwar


A thirty-year blind female student, Haleema Sarwar has set an example for all struggling females by completing a degree in Applied Sciences at the Nadirshaw Eduljee Dinshaw university Karachi. 

Haleema has shown that, if one is brave enough to pursue their aspirations, a disability need not be a hindrance to success.

Sarwar got admission to the MS program in 2018 to study applied linguistics. According to her, the university administration was initially reluctant to admit her because the program only operated during the evening shift.

But somehow she succeeded to persuade the administration to approve her enrollment. She gave the institution her word that if admitted, she would regularly attend her lessons without causing any problems for the university’s administration.

The course was intended to be finished in two and a half years, but her father passed just after she had finished her third semester. She, therefore, took a break and rejoined after some time.

Sarwar is now getting ready to start her professional life as a lecturer. She believes that since she has a better degree today, she can pursue a fantastic career as well. 

She said:

With the aid of assistive technology, she could perform her job as a teacher just as effectively as one who is able-bodied. What needs to change is how people see those with disabilities.

Haleem’a unwavering devotion has indeed much to teach those who have sight yet wallow in self-pity. For everyone who values dignity and is prepared to put in the effort, she can serve as a symbol of independence.

She received her MS in applied English linguistics on Tuesday at the NED University of Engineering and Technology’s 31st convocation.
