21-year-old Prachi Sukhwani has recently made her way to IIM Ahmedabad, thanks to her never-say-die attitude.

She suffers from macular dystrophy and lost 80 per cent vision. It's a rare, genetic eye disorder that causes loss of vision. But, it did not deter this BBA student to achieve her dream of studying in IIM-Ahmedabad.

She scored 98.55 percentile in CAT 2016 while appearing under the category of person with a disability.

"My short term goal is to join a company, preferably a multinational. Once I get some experience, I will have my own start-up. But my long term goal is to open an NGO for the blind", she says.

The news that she had cracked IIM-A came to her on Monday when she was appearing for her last semester BBA exam.

On her daughter's achievement, Prachi's father who is a businessman said, "She got calls from all the top three IIMs, IIM-Ahmedabad, IIM-Bangalore and IIM-Kolkata, and appeared for the interviews".

Swelling with pride, professor Sharad Bansal, dean of Faculty of Commerce at Prachi's college said, "I have been associated with the BBA programme since its inception in 1993. But this is one of the proudest moments. Prachi deserves special applause for her success despite all odds. Her success is an inspiration for everybody".
