An incredible story that was pretty well written. I found it fascinating to get a sense of what Haben's world is like. This offers a good perspective on disability rights and ableism.

Wow! I learned a lot from Haben Girma! I did not know why I felt kicked the stomach when someone told me that I was "Inspiring". Read her book and learn about Abelism.

The first part of her book, Haben Girma introduces herself. Instead of what most of us, she sees splashes of color. To me, that was very reassuring as I have glacoma and have always known, color is what I would miss the most if I lost my sight. She has a very limited range of sound frequencies. A few high frequency sounds and she described the low frequency are like hearing a washing machine. Intelligent and with a robust sense of humor as shown about stories of her family life.

To prove to her parents that she could take care of herself and not be dependent on them, she went to Mali as a volunteer to help build a school for children. You will learn how one teacher thought she was failing a course when it was really not knowing the details of the assignments. If you are a hearing and a seeing person, you do not realize what actually gets through. Yes, you hear sounds but without clarity. How make that clarity? Break down the barriers! Use technology! You can do it. And a lot of boundaries are from people. Let them know what is not working and find a way to break through!

I loved this book. Haben Girma understands so much. I hope that she continues to write and to fight for disability rights through the Courts, especially making Wow! I learned a lot from Haben Girma!

Haben

1. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot overcome your disability and do something great or impactful in a positive and uplifting way.

2. Remember your roots. Achieve more than your family in a different way and in your own style.

Biggest Takeaway

Dream big and don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot be a force to be recommend with in your career. Writing or educationally.

Quote in Summary

“Love fully. Love wholly. Live a good life helping those who need it and give back in whatever way you can.”… (mere)
