With grace, humor and passion, Maysoon Zayid shines a light on what it is like to live with a disability, in her case, cerebral palsy. A writer, actor, comedian and relentless advocate for all who are disabled, she grew up with the benefit of parents who believed everything is possible, for her as well as for her siblings. She works tirelessly to ensure that there are more positive images of people with disabilities in the media and in the world in general, a very serious cause which she promotes with her signature humor.
