Win is an amazing young woman who refuses to let her cerebral palsy slow her down. She has written 18 books and hosted dozens of podcasts. She also has a thriving jewelry design company, enough metal in her feet to set off any airport's metal detector, and a love of snowboarding.
Her books are about LIVING, about doing it anyway despite difficult challenges, and about finding your voice and passion. Her podcasts discuss the disease of cerebral palsy and other disabilities, as well as inspiring conversations with people who share their personal and inspiring stories.
She is an incredible person and I was honored and delighted to talk with her. This is the recording of our visit together.

"At age 24 I decided to tell my story. Writing this autobiography gave me the opportunity to pay tribute to my family members who are passionate about life and have instilled this passion in me. My parents' extraordinary support, encouragement, and pure love were my foundation as I navigated life, overcame obstacles, and achieved success as a young woman with cerebral palsy. I have to pay full tribute to my mother, who died in August 2010. From her, I learned to listen to my own voice as a guide to making life choices. She taught me to always expect the best from myself. My hope is that this book will provide insight into the extraordinary possibilities that those who live with disabilities have. I also hope that those without disabilities– rather than putting a focus on our differences – will come to understand what we all have in common. This book is for my mom, with love."
