My name is Franziska Sgoff, I was Born in 1996 and blind since birth.
I did an apprenticeship as a commercial correspondence in foreign languages, French and English.
Unfortunately I didn’t find a job in this branch. I’m not sure if the reason was my blindness or my missing job skills.
In 2017 I did an internship at Microsoft Deutschland GmbH. There I was responsible for caring on accessibility of different products.
I gave Workshops and showed the people how I use technology as a visually impaired person.
After Microsoft, I stayed in contact with the people I worked with among other Marco Richardson who found the INCLUSIFY AG, an IT-Startup to support customers with IT-solutions like artificial intelligence to make products more accessible for everyone.
Since December 2018, I work at the company as a social media specialist.
In 2019, I’ll publish a book for teenagers called „Wozu braucht man Jungs„.
I also would like to improve the work Situation for People with disability. So I’d like to give Workshops in enterprices to Show how a human with blindness do their work.
