Tonight, as part of Disability Awareness Week, the Multicultural Center is sponsoring an event featuring comedian Debbie Wooten at 6:00pm in the Meese Auditorium.

Wooten is praised as a inspiring and funny disability and diversity speaker, drawing on personal experience from being born with Spina Bifida, contracting polio at the age of five months, and many other life experiences that have led her to where she is today.

The University of Idaho had this to say, “Debbie’s message of seeing people for what they are on the inside and approaching adversity with humor was very inspiring and uplifting. The students, faculty, and staff had a wonderful time.”

The event promises to have “humor as raw and funny as any you’ve seen,” and to be inspiring to all audiences from different walks of life at the same time.
