7:00pm 125th Speaker Series with Rebecca Alexander '97
Mary E. Wilson Auditorium, Head-Royce School
At age 12, Rebecca learned she was losing her vision, and a year later that she was also going deaf. She was diagnosed with Usher Syndrome (Type III), a rare genetic condition. Rather than being deterred by these challenges, Rebecca has embraced them. Today, she is: a practicing psychotherapist in New York City; fluent in American Sign Language; a certified spin/indoor cycling teacher who teaches at top gyms in Manhattan; and is writing a memoir. Unstoppable, dynamic and inspiring, Rebecca is determined to make a difference and prove that disability is only in one’s mind.
