India

Never apologise for being a powerful woman

I first met India (@youleanmeup) at a fitness event, at the time I didn’t know she was deaf. As soon as I met her she opened to my eyes to another world which I knew nothing about. I learnt about lip reading, talking with signs and how important it is to face someone when your talking to them.

India has achieved an incredible amount, she is a fitness advocate and works bloody hard for her trade. I admire not only her strength but dedication to live such a full life without the ability to hear.

The images speak volumes about her confidence and her ability to hold herself as a strong independent woman.
