India native Shrirang Sahasrabudhe shares his story about leaving his life in India to come to the U.S. and attend UNCG. Sahasrabude lost his eyesight on his 13 birthday. While his family was very supportive, accessibility for the blind wasn’t always prevalent in India. So, he’s grateful for the accessibility that UNCG offers him.

“So, provided the base of education is a little different, the main thing that is different is accommodations provided to people with disabilities,” said Sahasrabudhe. “Now in India, there are some people who are trying hard to push those accommodations, and things are changing.  So I hope soon it will become accommodative as it is in the U.S.”

After graduating, Sahasrabudhe plans to teach subjects related to accessibility visibility design.
