Empowerment Through Integration — Summer 2018
For the past two weeks I had the pleasure of teaching STEM to blind kids in Beirut, Lebanon.The camp was created by Empowerment Through Integration, a non profit dedicated to changing the way we view disability. With the help of an amazing group of volunteers, I served as the STEM Curriculum Coordinator. We were able to teach over 50 blind children from all over Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine. The months before this trip were spent writing blind-accessible curriculum, coordinating lesson plans, and creating supply lists. I am proud to say this hard work paid off. This was the most rewarding experience, and I am honored to have been a part of this project. Thank you to each and every person who helped! I couldn’t have done it without you.
