Zainab Al-Eqabi takes us through her journey with disability. Having lost her leg at the age of 7 due to both an old bomb left from war and a medical mistake, she talks about her experience and the challenges she went through in her life.
Her message is to change mentalities toward disabled people in the Arab world and encourage people with disability to live their lives more positively and use their condition in their favor, and she sets a pretty good example in doing that.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
