Ask Dr. Bunny. Resilience and persistence? Carol Leish, guest.

Carol Leish joins Dr. Bunny to discuss resilience and persistence, and how both have made a huge difference in her life. Carol has been overcoming the odds ever since she was ten months old, when a car accident left her with slurred speech, permanent hand tremors, and blindness in one eye.  Carol’s positive attitude and persistence to not only overcome challenges, but to live a full and rich life, is extremely inspiring.  This is an interview you don’t want to miss!

“My main goal,” Carol says, “is to eradicate the prejudice that people have about people with physical disabilities. I hope that education in this area will help people to be more comfortable working with the disabled, and all of us will be more productive.”

About Carol Leish:

 

Carol invites her audience to join her on her personal journey of coping with visual and speech challenges.

Carol enlightens people by focusing on the strengths that people with disabilities have and demonstrates that there is always a way to get around a situation by either improvising or accommodating to it. For example, because of visual challenges, she will take Amtrak to various places. She is an eloquent speaker who deals about a sensitive subject in a way that inspires and educates the listener.

Carol continues to gain recognition, and has received several awards for her community achievements in promoting mutual understanding and respect of others regardless of their differences.

Carol graduated from CSU, San Bernardino, with a 3.6 GPA, earning her Masters degree in Education and Counseling. She went on to teach at San Bernardino in City schools, and worked for a variety of non-profit organizations.

Carol realized the importance of educating adults and youth to become more accepting of others, and started her “Call Me Capable” in-service presentations, and developed the Call Me Capable™ Game. She inspires her audience with her humor and genuineness, and leaves them with an awareness that we are all more similar than different.

“Through the lessons of life, I have realized my goal to help others. Remember the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, ‘Life is a succession of lessons that must be lived to be understood.’ I have, and continue to learn lessons of how to educate others to make them more aware of what I can do–what they can do too. Thus remember to Call Me Capable, and Yourself More Capable.”

Carol continues to gain recognition, and has received several awards for her community achievements in promoting mutual understanding and respect of others regardless of their differences.
