“I have cerebral palsy. I shake all the time,” Maysoon Zayid announces at the beginning of this exhilarating, hilarious talk.
While watching Maysoon’s video, she shares with us the story of her dad teaching her how to walk when she was 5. I didn’t realize that most people with cerebral palsy don’t learn to walk, but her dad made it a point to teach his daughter how to walk. And he made it a point that she was going to public school and she was to get A’s, just like her sisters.
As mothers, we too know that deep rooted desire to want and help our children learn. We will always try and be there to support them as they grow into young adults. It’s truly amazing to hear stories like these that you can feel the love that parents give to their children.
Maysoon is an amazing, beautiful and funny woman and I am so very happy she shared with us her story. Thank you!
