As a Sociology student at Ryerson University, Afnan is interested in studying the access to resources available to global populations. This project intrigued her because she was able to better understand how blind and low vision audiences perceive brands, and how different aspects of brands can influence or deter this population from access to resources that are readily available to sighted individuals.
