Keynote: The Art of Perseverance

taught by: Kemi Yemi-Ese


It is a known fact that we as humans face challenges.  People with disabilities face even more apparent challenges in all areas of life. From physical to societal barriers, this population has had to rely on creativity and tenacity to gain equity. It is both how we face those challenges and create opportunities for others that define our character. During this session,  Kemi Yemi-Ese CRC, LPC, will share tools integral to the art of perseverance through the lens of her lived experiences as a person, artist, and therapist with a disability.
