Striving through life as a visually impaired person gave Sristi K.C the courage and strength to fight for a course that she believes is for her and other visually impaired persons.

Sristi is a blind dancer from Nepal. At age sixteen she lost her eye sight. Initially she struggled to cope with her new situation. She was able to overcome many challenges to lead a life filled with happiness and dignity.Commonly blind people are treated as objects of pity and charity and she seeks to empower the blind as she has empowered herself. What initially was her limitation has now become her springboard and she is ready to rock the blind.

With this in mind she started to be      involved in an organization ready to help   people with disabilities.She also continued   with her dance.People who watched her were surprised when they realized that she was blind.    Their ovation was a driving force to her. She then  performed on various stages in Nepal and abroad. Her desire to learn new steps    were, however, shattered because the dancing institutions were    not ready to accept a blind dancer. They were at the opinion that blind people cannot follow instructions properly.

"If you don't find a way, create one” (Hannibal)

Her passion to empower the blind people to enjoy life like any other sighted  person grew. She  didnt want blindness to be synonymous  with pity and charity anymore. She started organizing various workshops in Nepal and India. The reactions of her participants encouraged her so much that she  decided to set up “Blind Rocks!” an organization that will travel  around the world to get the blind out of their comfort zones and empower them to be part of life. And she plans even more than dance: fashion shows with and for the blind inter personal skills, and adventurous tours, such as rock climbing, white water rafting etc.
