“I gotta tell you, I got 99 problems, and palsy is just one. If there was an Oppression Olympics, I would win the gold medal. I’m Palestinian, Muslim, I’m female, I’m disabled, and I live in New Jersey. If you don’t feel better about yourself, maybe you should.”
Comedian Maysoon Zayid was born with cerebral palsy after her mum’s doctor was a little too knife-happy whilst delivering her. Now, she shares her wonderful and hilarious story with others who may believe they are unable to achieve anything they want to, as well as addressing some of the worrying aspects of Hollywood and social media. If you have just fourteen minutes spare today, I suggest you watch Maysoon Zayid because if she can-can, you can-can!
