Avelino De Sa
Quite often we see incidents where the differently-abled are deprived of a good career opportunity in spite of having the appropriate qualification. Avelino sets an example for all those who want to defeat their disability and get the top positions in their chosen fields. Born with cerebral palsy, Avelino never let this disability come in his away. He became a certified investment consultant and in 2003 he started the Disability Rights Association of Goa (DRAG; www.disabilitygoa.com) He explains what DRAG is: “It’s a collective of disabled persons. We include all types of disabilities. He has been self-employed for over 12 years now and has over 100 clients. We can learn a lot from this hero who has made it possible through his dedication and passion.
