What We'll Cover
In her presentation "Woke Up Blind. Now I'm Here," Lachi will share the story of the day she woke up with no vision, emphasizing how strength of mind and character (and just a bit of outside the box thinking) can enable you to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Additionally, she will discuss disability culture and the importance of disability inclusion.
