Maysoon Zayid

I subscribe to Upworthy and as a result receive some of the most uplifting bits of journalism sent to my inbox. While watching Maysoon Zayid present her TED talk, I knew that I would have to share it here.

Maysoon Zayid is an actress, stand-up comic, philanthropist and advocate for the disabled. She has Cerebral Palsy, which she explains is the reason her body “shakes all the time…it’s exhausting!”

Through education we can better understand the things that we have limited exposure, which in turn blossoms into acceptance and compassion for all beings.

“I got 99 problems…palsy is just one.” – Maysoon Zayid
