Jeeja Ghosh

Meet Jeeja Ghosh, a cerebral palsy patient, who is the brand ambassador for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections and is also the proud mother of an adopted baby girl.

Born with cerebral palsy and an indomitable spirit, Jeeja Ghosh has overcome many a hurdle in her life. The latest feather in her cap is her appointment as brand ambassador for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections as the Election Commission organised camps to enroll voters with disabilities. A graduate in sociology, Jeeja did her Post Graduation from Delhi University and went on to do a second masters in Disability Studies from Leeds University, UK. She became head of Advocacy and Disability Studies at Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy.

She co-founded a non-profit organisation ‘Inclusion Infinite Foundation’ as well as an LLP ‘Ebullience Advisors’. Both startups are replacing the charity based model with a rights based one. Chin up and ready to rock the world, at a personal level, Jeeja pierced yet another glass ceiling by adopting a baby girl, Hiya.
