Haben Girma, Author of, “Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law
My special live video guest is Haben Girma, the first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, an advocate for equal opportunities for people with disabilities, and author of, “Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law.”
President Obama named Haben a White House Champion of Change and she also received the Helen Keller Achievement Award and a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. President Bill Clinton, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Chancellor Angela Merkel have all honored Haben, who believes disability is an opportunity for innovation. She travels the world teaching the benefits of choosing inclusion and for these reasons, and a few more we’ll discuss on the show, I’m honored to have Haben as my guest.
