Meet Azima Dhanjee, CEO & Co-Founder of Pakistani Startup, Making Life Easier for the Deaf and Mute

Meet Azima Dhanjee, CEO & Co-Founder of Pakistani Startup, Making Life Easier for the Deaf and Mute“You see, both my parents are deaf and mute while my brother and I have no such ‘limitation’,” shares Azima. “The first time my classmates saw me communicate with my mother in sign language, they started laughing because they had never seen such a thing before. I did not understand what was so funny but I knew there was something “different” about the way I communicated with my mother.”
