What do you do when doctors pronounce a worrying diagnosis to you about your spinal cord?Many of us will decide to give up on life and even wish to wallow in the sympathy of family and friends.
But this is never the story of Juliet Azedi Ajaab, a young university graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who was diagnosed with Scoliosis - a condition of the spine which is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often before puberty.
"I was diagnosed with scoliosis (a spinal condition) which was going to be a challenge if I worked in a normal corporate job," she narrated to YEN.com.gh
It's been years since the diagnosis and Juliet has been able to pull things through with her husband who is a photographer helping her showcase the lovely collection of goods and services she offers.
She has not only won international awards but also keeps inspiring young persons across the world. This was after she the founder of Zedi, Juliet Ajaab, explained in a video how she has harnessed new technologies to help her company grow.
Using social media has allowed her to significantly increase the company's client base and to reach out to markets outside of Ghana while educational resources on the internet have helped her to improve her skills in key areas, such as advertising and customer services.
She also outlines how cloud storage has transformed her way of working, allowing her to instantly share photos of her latest creations with fashion houses around the world.
Persons like Juliet continue to be an encouragement to millions of disabled people across the country. Eventhough government has initiated some packages for entrepreneurs like Juliet who continue to face the pain of stereotype that all persons with a disability are a burden to progress.
