Keynote Speaker

In a special format, I combine film screening and keynote.
I share moving stories from the film and my experiences as a mother of a daughter with Down Syndrome.
As a dedicated speaker, I advocate for diversity and promote awareness of inclusion.
Together, we can expand our horizons beyond the limits of integration because inclusion is a fundamental human right.
