Meet Laurie Rubin: Blind Opera Singer, Author and Entrepreneur

Date: Thursday, December 3
Time: 2:00 PM CST 20:00 GMT

Laurie Rubin and her dog guide

Laurie Rubin, renowned mezzo-soprano, author and entrepreneur, shares her experiences in overcoming challenges and surpassing and redefining others’ expectations.

Join Seminars@Hadley as Laurie talks about why she chose opera as her life’s work; her experiences in learning braille at a young age; the ups and downs of getting a dog guide; why she started a business as a jewelry designer, what motivated her to write a memoir aimed at young adults and much more! Her stories will inspire you, make you laugh and show that anything is possible when you "dream in color."
