Haben Girma, the first deaf-blind student to graduate from Harvard Law School will be speaking about her recently released memoir. Her memoir is called 'Haben: the Deaf-Blind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law.' Haben has many feathers to her cap, most notably being recognized as a White House Champion of Change in 2013 and getting the opportunity to introduce President Obama and Vice President Biden on the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 2015.

She will talk to us about her work on accessibility, her book and a whole lot more. This event is being hosted by the Rhodes Disability Project.

This session will include 30-40 minutes talk by Haben, followed by discussion.
