Seeing People As They Are, Not How They Look – With Inclusion & Disability Expert Sara Minkara
Sara Minkara lost her sight at the age of seven but gained a greater awareness of herself and the world around her. Because she can’t interact with labels from a visual-lens, she has learned to withhold her assumptions about people and get to know them for who they really are. Sara Minkara is a Lebanese-American, Muslim woman and the Special Advisor on International Disability Rights. She is a self-described traveler, entrepreneur, introvert, and troublemaker who loves math and nature among other things. In this episode of Traverse Talks with Sueann Ramella, Sara discusses her experience living as a blind woman in a world built for seeing people. Listen to this episode to learn why disability inclusion isn’t just the right thing to do, but a value for all people.
