The video is directed by Ms. Ihssane, a Moroccan Youtuber and influencer. The video is a documentary about the success stories of three students of Ibn Tofail University. The three students benefited from the services offered by UIT Accessibility Centre (assistive technology, counselling, etc). 
The influencer starts her video with an interview with Prof. Abdelaziz KRIBII the Director of UIT Accessibility centre (AC), who provides a historical sketch of the establishment of the centre. The latter is the fruit of two EU funded projects, SWING and PACES.


The video showcases the challenges that these students went through in their lives. Assim, the first foreign student with a visual disability to hold a PhD degree in Morocco, has declared that disability is a motivator to excel in what one does. Reda, a holder of an MA degree, a doctoral student and a world champion in many sports competitions, stresses that has managed to overcome the hardships of life and the stereotypical view of society. He is now an administrator at the School of Humanities in Kenitra. Oumaima, an MA student, has shown courage to establish herself as an independent person who has always rejected the denigrating view of her entourage.
The three students are true examples of what the university can do to help students with disabilities to be productive members of society.
