“How do we take shame around our disabilities and begin to turn it into pride & purpose?
At the age of 9, Tiffany became disabled as a result of a car accident that also took the life of her father. For the next decade, Tiffany navigated the many challenges of adolescence, grief, and shame around her disability.
Today, Tiffany Yu is the CEO & Founder of Diversability, an award-winning entirely disabled-run and led social enterprise to elevate disability pride, and a content creator with 170k+ followers across platforms. She is a 3x TEDx speaker and has been named a TikTok API (Asian & Pacific Islander) Trailblazer and a LinkedIn Top Voice in Disability Advocacy. Her story is not only uplifting but powerfully educational and empowering! Join us as we hear how this disability advocate leader turned her tragedy into a global movement!
