Esraa was born in Egypt as a deaf child. While growing up, she was tagged as “unfit” due to her disability. But despite the discrimination she faced in all circles of life, she still had aspirations of becoming a dentist and then went on to apply to many dental schools across the country.

Unfortunately she was turned away by all. But luckily she was accepted by one. This led Esraa to become Egypt’s first deaf dentist.
