Interactions with Dr.Hoby

Dr Hoby visited Donum Visi Curious Monkeys leadership and the class with his respected mother and gave a motivational speech on succeeding in Chemistry field and academic world.

His respected mother also shared her experiences and views in raising a blind child and working as a teacher - she is a long term educationalist. She is saying raising him was one of the most interesting thing she ever did - and that each thing was an inspiration in design thinking - and that he turned her into a thinker, a designer, a problem solver.
