Sara Minkara — Creating A More Inclusive Society By Empowering Youth With Disabilities

Sara Minkara 1.png

For the next few weeks, I’ll be releasing a few podcast conversations in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative. I attended their yearly event a few weeks ago and was able to record conversations with some of their alums. Each podcast will include a short introductory conversation I had with Chelsea Clinton. The first of these conversations is with the incredible Sara Minkara.

Sara is a Lebanese-American Muslim woman who lost her sight at the age of seven. In so many ways, she has used her disability as an advantage. She spends most of her time empowering young people with disabilities “transforming stigma against disability globally.” She also speaks quite a bit. She does all of this as the founder and CEO of Empowerment Through Integration

Super cool side note—she was named one of Forbes 30 under 30 in 2017!

Follow her on Twitter. And keep up with the work ETI is doing on Twitter, also!
