Speaker Sara Minkara is a blind Lebanese/American woman who lost her sight at a young age being just seven years old. Sara is the founder and president of Empowerment Through Integration (ETI), which aims to empower and include young people with visual impairment in the Middle East-North Africa region.

As a blind woman herself, speaker Sara Minkara knows the struggle of being disabled in our society. She is an advocate in the areas of disability inclusion and social entrepreneurship. Since founding ETI, Sara has continued her work in the social sector while also growing ETI from a summer camp to an organization that today reaches over 3,000 individuals across Lebanon and the United States.

Speaker Sara Minkara has a passion and goal for empowering blind youth and has received numerous awards for her passionate work in the social sector including The Clinton Global Initiative Outstanding Commitment Award in 2009 and Forbes “30 Under 30” class of 2017 in the Social Entrepreneurs Division. Her personal and professional commitment to disability rights and youth empowerment began while she was an undergrad at Wellesley College and continued throughout her time at the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government.

Sara is now an established public speaker and was recently invited to do a TEDx Talk called “Why We Should Be Blind to the Labels of Society”. Sara knows how to overcome the challenge of being blind and has learnt to not only live with it but be proud of it and embrace it as it has taught her so much.
