In this fascinating discussion, author Dr. Shahd Alshammari discusses her memoir Head Above Water, which takes us into intimate conversations on illness and society's stigmatization of disabled bodies.
We discussed women's identities and bodies and the importance of discussing the human experience of illness.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 18, Alshammari never learned to give up and continued her education until she earned her doctoral degree in 2014.
Don's miss this intimate, inspiring conversation on illness and the representation of women in literature.
