Maysoon Zayid: i got 99 problems palsy is just one

maysoon zayidMaysoon Zayid is a Palestinian-American comedian, screen-writer and activist with cerebral palsy who believes anything is possible despite having the odds stacked against her. In her talk at TED Women, she tells her story and explains that her father’s message of “yes, you can can” was critical in her success. I love her infectious optimism and her message to promote diversity through social media. After hearing her talk, it will not surprise you that she has performed in the Middle East “uncensored and uncovered.” She is hilarious, intelligent and 100% herself.
