Sara hosts a range of tailored courses and other events meant to support all kinds of teams in their individual growth and group development. In every session, Sara incorporates her practical experiences as the founder of a successful non-profit, an advocate, advisor and facilitator for universities, government and corporations—and her reality as a Blind Muslim Lebanese-American woman—to guide participants through how to connect authentically in large settings, bring their authentic voice to bear, and make meaningful connections in any setting.
In partnership with experts from a range of professional backgrounds, Sara is constantly in development to expand course offerings—and she is always excited to try something new. In the past, she has created programs for audiences as varied as graduate education students at Ottawa’s St. Francis Xavier University, high school students in Turkey, young women in Kyrgyzstan, and public policy students at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Sara reminded us that instead of having a deficit way of thinking, we must have, and promote, a value-add thinking. It is so important to uncover the value and strengths that everyone can bring because everyone has a value! We understand that including people with disabilities is essential because they have something important to contribute; when they do not get to, we lose out on a very important voice and value.
