She’s Miss India Deaf 2018, But She’s Not Going Unheard!
She’s like any 20-year-old. Active on social media, vivacious and strongly opinionated. The only difference is that Deshna Jain is deaf. This is a tiny handicap in the otherwise full and fabulous life Deshna is living. She’s recently won the title of Miss India Deaf 2018.
Her video on The Quint is a beautiful celebration of her win. The video perhaps stands out the most for its portrayal of her win and her life in a fun way. You can see that Deshna is the kind of girl that enjoys living life to the fullest. There’s no tear-jerking drama about her handicap here. She’s cheerful, happy, and questions you on your long-held beliefs.
As she explains in the video, she’s active on Instagram, and has got quite the following. She would have been a dancer, if she wasn’t a model, she says. And, she also thinks women should get access to education so they can stand up for themselves.
We love how Deshna Jain inspires all of us and makes our problems look, well, quite insipid.
