Esraa was born deaf and grew up in Egypt where she was classed as "unfit" due to her disability.

Despite the discrimination, she had aspirations of becoming a dentist and applied to many dental schools across the country.

She was turned away by all but one.

Accepting the only place she was offered, Esraa went on to become Egypt's first deaf dentist.
