August 18, 2020

TIME Magazine’s TIME 100 Talks, a video series highlighting influential people, has included alumna and disability-rights advocate Haben Girma BA ’10 in its line-up.

Girma, a recipient of Lewis & Clark’s 2016 Outstanding Young Alumna Award, is the first deaf-blind person to graduate from Harvard Law School. In her talk, Girma expands upon the article she wrote for TechCrunch, “The Robots Occupying Our Sidewalks.”

Last month, Girma published her first New York Times essay, What the A.D.A Means To Me. Last year, Girma  published her first memoir, Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law.
