Fellow actors, and people in the industry should watch this beautiful video of Maysoon Zayid… actually everyone should watch it.

I’m a big fan of TED talks, and this one definitely spoke to me as a multi-cultural performer and woman. “With grace and wit, the Arab-American comedian takes us on a whistle-stop tour of her adventures as an actress, stand-up comic, philanthropist and advocate for the disabled.” She’s funny, inspiring, and I was just so impressed by her that I had to share. Here is Maysoon’s website if you want to read more about her!
