Ms. Beno Zephine – “change should come from the women themselves.”
Women of Courage Award
Beno Zephine, a visually impaired woman from Tamil Nadu, who is all set to become the first IFS officer with 100 per cent visual impairment, says she is raring to go around the globe representing India.
Zephine credits her parents for what she has achieved, saying her father took her wherever she wanted to go in pursuit of her dreams and managing to buy every other book for this purpose. Her mother would assist her in studying the books, sometimes reading them aloud.
