My Journey as a User / Developer of Assistive Technologies

"High pk here in this episode. I'll be talking about my journey as a developer of assistive technology. Any journey has ups and downs and my journey has had more than its fair share. But this journey continues. I've had cerebral palsy since birth. My first exposure to technology started from my college days for my entire childhood slash school days. I had absolutely no exposure to any form of technology when i finished schooling. I wanted to do computer engineering. But i was told that i couldn't because i couldn't draw scientific diagrams and i needed help with my love exercises slash practical. I had to settle for commerce. Even when i did come face to face with the computer. I quickly realized that. I couldn't use it like a normal person. I could press only one key on the keyboard at a time. And i also had multiple problems in using the mouse so nothing about computers was going to be easy for me quickly. I spent some time in trying to figure out how i could use a computer. Despite all my limitations the answer was that i had to use assistive. Technologies every user needs to use a specific combination of assistive technologies to be able to achieve an optimal level of performance slash productivity. Any less or more than this optimal level and the user is not able to function adequately in previous podcast. I have given details about how i use my computer. Never had i imagined in my wildest dreams i would get an opportunity to work on a couple of projects in the area of assistive technologies but as destiny would have it. I did get such an opportunity barely three years into my career. My experience in these projects was more like a roller coaster ride. Initially everything was good. I was asked to work on some software. Which would be used with the hardware device resembling an access which

"Right. Nicole thank you so much for joining me today on advocate like a mother. So happy that you're able to join us today so if you could just give us an opportunity to kind of ask some questions and tell us a little bit about your family who you guys are and just what you guys like to do together absolutely well first of all i just wanna say. Make huge fan of advocate like a mother. Like i'm really excited to part of this platform and be part of this community of such amazing support. So thank you for this opportunity Well we are from the southwest suburbs of chicago. It is my husband and my two children. I have a six year old son. Cristiano in a three year old baby girl ashlin. We call her baby. i'm not ready yet to say that she's anything else Ready i won't give that up yet but You know in two thousand seventeen on march. I actually our lives completely changed when we received a quadriplegic cerebral palsy diagnosis for our six month old daughter. So you know as you know We had a recalibration phase and tried to figure out what that meant for our family moving forward right and you know i feel like that phase is something that a lot of people aren't aware of and and so what for those who might not know what what's kind of that stage of after receiving the diagnosis. It's almost like i think you mentioned this in your blog which It it's called it simple. Be kind which. I really loved that I think it was there in an instagram post. That you had mentioned just the like what now phase. Yeah yeah i mean. I think you're exactly right. Will we know when we grow up. We want to have children i think. Ideally i'm not sure if anyone has ever said i hope i have children hassle child that has to go through a lot. You know what. I mean and insolent happens to you. When you pray for healthy and sometimes you don't get exactly what maybe you envisioned. There's a shock factor There's a morning factor. And i'm not too proud to say that there is a morning factor in finding out that your lives are going to be different than what you had imagined. And it's okay to feel those things but that recalibration phase is trying to figure out okay. This is how it's going to be. How are we going to live. How are we going to do this. What are we going to choose to do. And for us that was being public about our journey and sharing journey as a form of advocacy. And maybe a form of therapy for myself and my husband's you know the more we talk about it the more we see. We're not alone. And that's really empowering. I really love it. You say recalibration because i feel like that necessary. That's very like an active word. Like you are going to reset and you're moving forward. You're not gonna stay in the same place. And i feel the same way as you as you mentioned right now is. I have never been very proud of saying that. I grieved for my child. I feel like we reserve that term for a greater loss like deaths and show i. I felt a lot of shame. Really saying and grieving for my child. Who's very much alive at low. But but i think that you kind of hit the nail right on the head in terms of like we gotta recalibrate. We got to assess those previous dreams. And now now what you know and kind of moving forward. I really love that in. So i think i think you mentioned as well like you. There is a lot of guilt in feeling morning. You know my child. My child dinner pass away. She's very much alive. She's very happy. But it's okay to feel those emotions you know. You can't sit in that place for too long right. We've gotta move. But i think that was something that i needed to hear from someone else. I needed to hear that. It was okay to feel that way. Absolutely and so those who might not be following you or might not know you yet. Which hopefully after this podcast will. And i wanted to talk a little bit about just you personally so for those who may not know and can you talk a little bit about your background and how that platform has kind of allowed you to kind of move forward in advocacy work. Absolutely in two thousand eighteen. After my daughter was about nine months old. I needed to do something for myself to heal right. And another selfish but I'm a person who likes action. And i needed to do something. So what did i do. I decided to compete in mrs usa universe. Which is definitely not a normal route but had pageantry background. I was mrs illinois international previously so it was something that made me feel empowered in really good about myself accomplishing something of that magnitude. I said you know what this is. What i'm going to use to heal and it was the preparation. That really taught me how i felt in how to speak about how i feel and it was the first pageant that i was able to stand on stage and say my name is nicole working in. I am proudly the parents a child that has different needs. And that sentence took me months months to say Because i would choke up. I would it would either it kind of just stuck in my throat and so by the time the pageant came i was able to speak about my journey. Our journey my daughter. And by no way did i think i was going to win that pageant but it was a blessing f for my family for my daughter for the advocacy. And i'm extremely proud to hold. That title Mrs usa universe two thousand eighteen and I was invited to compete at mrs universe in seibu philippines and It's just been a whirlwind and it's definitely been an amazing journey and a a great healing process in at that you know and i think that that's something that again. You're you're bringing up. And i love that. We get to interview people different perspectives. Because people can hear you and and other other episode. That will be airing in feel seen invalidated like okay. That's me back me and that might be the first time for somebody here. Is that but i think for many parents even just parenting typically developing children. Our lives can vary much our identity. Can you very much wrapped up in In our motherhood. And i think that even takes different toll on us when we are raising a child. Who has a diagnosis for disability. Where it's all consuming and so finding avenues to then find a place to be yourself but then also it be a conduit for greater things. I think that that's really really empowering to say the least. It felt empowering to be honest. I know people who may not know about pageantry may have a different view of it. But when you're actually involved in a system like i was with transcontinental pageants its platform based in. It's all of these women sharing their passion projects from all over the world and.

"At may not very same but My parents now As artistic I think My cousins neil But as some as summa on the autism expect doesn't always know that their autistic Ah for instance I wasn't. I'm just gonna give you like Get kind of a gas an estimate. But i probably didn't really figure out until maybe probably may ninth grade may test. Maybe maybe even love later in high school. Because at that ain't i was keeping a secret from it button Like i was. And i think i didn't. I knew that i was in a smaller class. i it's not like i really paid attention to the classes. I went into the classrooms. I just thought as i My class which isn't a smaller room. Because yeah i don't know you didn't. There's only so many rooms a big rooms and and skull. So i just didn't know that they just kind of I didn't know if they showed this in that room. Just because that was just the room that they have on hand and plus i. Maybe somebody could call me naive. But when i when i was growing up i absolutely hated public schools. Ask anybody Knows me very well. I hated public school. I even just that dad. His school in general and because i was studying but as lying things i didn't like to learn except for except for Graber on my classes were basically in special education and my teacher made science fun. And she's like oh you got to deal with. The science experience mincemeat in highschool. Wait until you see it while my at the haskell i i don't think guided once science experiments over there was the lamest experiment world. That's what they experiment was as subtle lane that you see how lame we can be in the whole high school years science experiments whatsoever. Take the fun as girl who takes the school and so And so you have great teachers or you don't and what the funny thing is is that Intel i did my own research on my own disability in highschool it No-one told me. And until i put the burgers and asked questions. No one would've told me so. Even though i was diagnosed with the back in eighty seven. I didn't know the complexities of it intil. Thirty two years later. I didn't know that it was a no odd disbelief. I didn't know that. I would need help for the rest of my life. But now that i know that i have a diva and truly appreciate the help that ideal out. I can also appreciate I'll how and stuff as well For the years. I didn't know that. No i'm i found my own accord and i probably have to say i don't think i would take a very well. Somebody told me. I was autistic because at the time. I didn't know what that meant.

"The. I closed every blind in my house. I closed every curtain. And I'm more. About two days. And what I cried about was. I needed to more that I lost the normal baby. That, my life was not gonNA. Be a white picket fence with the pretty house and corn to the baseball like we had drained. Very honest admission from at Lisa's sexton about some very difficult circumstances in her life, she was with us last time on focus on the family. Describing deep despair has she tried to cope with the diagnosis for her son? Tyler of cerebral palsy. And you'll hear a second day of the discussion with your host focus on the family. President Jim Daly I love the story, because there's so much hope and faith in it for a mother and a father who gave birth to a child with special needs, and all those hopes that you heard in that clip, those dreams that parents normally have. They were all dashed when they realized their son would not measure up like every other young man, but you'll be encouraged when you. You hear what happens next in the story. That's coming lease Anderson Tyler story reminds us that we're all made in the image of God, and that he cares deeply about each of us, and he wants to draw you closer in the trials that you're facing Lisa. An tyler have captured so much of their story. The joys and the challenges of special needs in a book called no such thing as camped. Let's go ahead and listen to that second part of the conversation. At a store in your book that caught my attention where you creatively took a doll in down moment where tyler was at emotionally that day. Tell us what you did with the burt doll. Well I WANNA. Encourage parents to when you're desperate. Desperation is not a bad thing. Sometimes, if it's long term, it can be, but desperation lead you to the feet of Jesus. If you see that I mean time after time after time in the Bible, we see that. A lot of times when you were saying you know wisdom and different things you're desperate for a way to to figure this out and as you said Tyler Had all of these little tiny characters Ernie and Burton know the whole sesame street gang, and he would play with them all the time. It was very favorite thing to do, and he would put him up on the hearth of the fireplace. And one day, he came home from preschool. And everything was up on the fireplace in Tyler's very meticulous. He's very. He is every detail of everything. And so he. Asked me he was sitting by the hearth, and he looked up at me and he said. Why is my legs different than all the other kids at my school? and. I wasn't ready for that question. And I said, why don't you take your nap? We'll have lunch and then when you get up, we'll talk about it. So Tyler, all tucked in I'm sitting on the couch and I'm looking at those characters and I thought. I'M GONNA chop birt's arms off with a butcher knife. Kind of mother. Sane woman let me just really. I am saying so. I went to the counter, and I got out my knife and might chopping block, and I cut off birt's arms through births, arms away and I, put him up by. And I knew right away that Tyler would notice it I I knew. So pretty soon, tyler would combat crawl because he could not get up on his feet without us, Walker and his braces, so he would combat with this does and then his little body would just kind of swirl behind him as it came down the hardwood floor. So, he came around the corner and he noticed immediately and he went. Oh, my word. What happened to but psalms? And I said Oh you're not gonNA believe what happened. He was in an accident. When you were in bed and the world is GONNA. Call him disabled because they had to amputate his arms. But. He can still be with Ernie. He can still out with big bird and cookie monster, and he can still be a part of the sesame street gang, but he's going to be different and he's going to be special. and. He said just like my legs. I said just like your legs. You'RE GONNA have to learn how to do the things that Bert will have to learn without arms. And he said okay! Did. You make that connection I mean. It sounds like you really caught it. Yeah, it just made sense. At that particular time, it was what I needed here and. It was it. It was just okay. I just can't. It amazes me Lisa at how God gave you the right thought at the right moment to kind of provide tyler with the lesson. He needed as a little boy at. Let's move forward. We've talked about Tyler's early years. Of course he gets through. High, school. You know you can hear it. Just how bright tyler is and you talked about the power of observation that you saw in him as a young boy. In here. You are thinking you know. Will he do vocationally? He has cerebral palsy. He's going to be difficult for him to be mobile. What happens when college comes around? That was tough. Let Tyler go because he needed us so much. Did you feel fear? We felt a lot of fear and you're sending them into. The the wolves united a normal child when we dropped her daughter off at college. You're fearful. Billy's three years younger than three years younger than Tyler. And she is just as loved and special as Tyler as and she's quote normal and it was fearful, dropping her off and tyler. You worried about doing stairs. Things that other parents don't really think about I didn't have to worry about the drugs. The alcohol things like that. I worried about the safety. About him, making friends about him being included. And, so it we were scared to death, his dad and I were both there and his sister, and it was a tough time for our family at Tyler at that moment. Are You thinking the world is my oyster that you can do anything or even understanding the fact that you have these difficulties in the impediments. It was made apparent by others not to me. you have such a positive outlook? Where did that come from? Well it I state. It really did I start from my parents. It really did. They desired me to dream big, and they let me do that so for me. I wanted to achieve my goals and I knew I could, but some people in the world disagree with that and so going to college college, one of the most difficult times in my entire exist. Why was one of the reasons is? I got made fun of almost every day I walked on the college campus. College level. You would think that we as guys. Guys get older and we I mean. College is a vast array of personalities and people that I was just a guy that kind of walks funny. My known business that be left alone. Every day I got made fun of other thing was about ambulation and moving from place to place throughout the campus I. Didn't you know one of these you should use? A wheelchair and I worked so hard to get out of a wheelchair. I didn't want to go back, so I thought I've worked so hard to be independent and be typical like everybody else, not that I've you. Several policies a blessing, and I and I wouldn't change it for the world. But I worked so hard to stay away from wheelchair, and I thought well. How am I going to do this? House God and do this? And literally what I saw guys at the beginning of all this at the beginning of high school, and on every time there was a hurdle and said he couldn't be done got said we're going to jump this hurdle. Hand in hand, and I remember specifically talking about emulation in college in high school, my senior in high. High School. We took a senior trip and I was Epcot Center and Disneyland and you know the segway human.

A Father's Story with KJ Carson, March of Dimes Ambassador

"K J Carson here. He's an ambassador with the march of dimes. And he has an amazing story that he's going to share with us and he has a lot of information about the march of dimes. I'm really excited to learn because I did not know how much they were helping out women and babies and families so it's really cool. The work that they are doing in Cagey got to experience it firsthand. So thank you so much for being here. Oh thank you so much for having me I guess where the beginning starts. Maybe Two days before our daughter was born and My wife was complaining of tiredness and so forth and we were really fortunate because The situation that we had for her healthcare included included a midwife and so that midwife had given us a card where if something had didn't seem right within a let's just call it a clockwise our someone from the midwife team get back to you so I said Okay. Well once we get back to our home which was about ninety minutes away Let me know how you feel. Maybe your medicine melted my wife's medicine just run out and so I thought okay maybe the worst. You'll need a refill To to kind of your because your body was depending on this medicine for your morning. Sickness so My wife wakes up the next day. And she's like I can't see virtually at all. Can you call the number? It's all like okay. Wow I've never known it to be this. So hit the pause button on that part of the story to tell from the father's perspective and I think every father should probably map out a route couple of them to get to the hospital and the time we're in the Washington DC AREA. If you knew how just absolutely ridiculous traffic is in the DC area. A hat and done this yet. Yeah so after calling the midwife They called back within about twenty five thirty minutes. It's a come into the hospital where okay absolutely. This is what I'm thinking. We'll get prescription for medication and So forth so I'll pause that part before we get to the hospital to say that my wife has been the epitome of healthy eating Not over indulging Had always been on. Medications has never been a smoker of any kind. I can't even get her to drink even the sweetest wine so she she clearly observes just virtually all the tenants of what a healthy mom should be But then when we got to the hospital It just seemed like we were there a little bit longer than expected and it turns out that my wife ended up with a syndrome called help It's an acronym acronym H E L P One way more people would know about is pre ECLAMPSIA but it's a severe case of P pre ECLAMPSIA and so my wife's blood pressure shot through the roof in the high to hundreds was the top number and we were just told. We're GONNA take the we have to take the baby today. And so my wife was only twenty nine weeks pregnant at the time and so our daughter was born two pounds. One ounces of two pounds one ounce And was in the nick you for one hundred and fourteen days She had a category four brain bleed and born with low scale cerebral palsy My wife did not have a chance to hold her her daughter for about four days because of the level of magnesium if I'm correct That was in her system and I was able to see my daughter because of the time that she was born. And because the visitation hours in the Nick. You which we're Kinda split in two times Were about to start so I was able to see her briefly for a little bit but our daughter Sarah was make you four hundred and fourteen days and it was just very tough to touch our daughter through a glass partition where book plexiglass. You know. Just giving her to reach our thumb. Grab our thumb or grab our finger But what was really fascinating about being in the nick? You were the other families in. How kind of Emeka is kind of this bubble of life where It doesn't matter what your walk is. What your beliefs are what your status is. Everybody's there for the same reason they're baby can't go home right away and so it kind of becomes a a small dependency in a way because you look forward to seeing the other families even though you're hoping just like everybody else that they can go home today with their child and so the march of dimes Was there for US When Sarah was in she's now eat When Sarah was moved from one hospital next to the Pentagon Over into an area of Fairfax Virginia The march of dimes had had a kind of like a thing for families where you can stop by. Wasn't anything mandatory. It was just the way to let someone know or let you know that. Someone's there if you had any questions that you didn't feel like you could ask a doctor or or or one of the nurse practitioners or one of the nurses that are in there Let's just say they dealt with the mental health side of it. If the Niki was the physical the march of dimes was there to help address. Some of the mental. And I know for my wife who could speak better about this but I know that it was something as simple as providing my wife a journal because as a husband and Kind of jokey way husbands are just notoriously known for like are you okay are you okay are you okay are you okay? And it's like I'm not okay anymore because you keep asking me but from a serious standpoint I just didn't know which avenue to walk down In terms of trying to get that communication with my wife of trying to understand why our child wasn't home And during that time when our daughter was in the hospital Literally inactive guide. A freak of nature happened where there was an earthquake that hit the east coast and it was like a six point. Oh and I happened to be over the hospital trying to let my wife know like hey look. Don't get out here. We don't know how bad things are. Even though nothing bad happened at the hospital but it was like okay. There's an earthquake. Are you okay at home? I'm wanting I'm going into the hospital as people are coming out and so So many of those different things that were going on that time while daughter was in the nick you The march of dimes able to provide even something as simple as a diary To my wife for her to be able to get her expressions in her thoughts out. You know again Probably one of the things that helped a lot and what I've learned from the situation is you know. Sometimes the foods that you put into your body can can exert exacerbate some of the stresses that are going on that. You're never really prepared for so. I really think that one of the blessings and everything that was going on was that my wife had already had kind of a a conscious thought of what she was putting into her body or not over stacking the foods into your body which you know I I would have no problem that they were. I knew there was one time she was like I'm craving mashed potatoes from KFC. And I WANNA Taco from Taco Bell and I was not going ask. Do you wanna eat this right now and it was just like okay. I'll be back in ten fifteen minutes. Is that enough time? It's just say also get one of those Green Mountain dews okay or the Light Blue Mountain dews. I'm like okay. You're really in his own but it wasn't an everyday thing and I think because that wasn't an everyday thing It allowed some of the mental to be able to permeate and be able to translate to the paper for her For me And I would recommend to any husband or father who's going through the same thing Try and find some things that you know may bring smiles to others During your free time I happened to start donating food to a food bank at that time. In fact that's exactly where I was around the corner From the hospital Earthquake hit and so But it it gave me a a sense of being appreciative. In spite of the things that are currently happening With me at that time. We're with our family at that time.

"cerebral palsy" Discussed on Biz Talk Radio

"You are listening to the best of consider this put together over the last few years of this show. Good morning and welcome to consider this. I'm Joe Clark. I'm sorry, we're happy to have you along. He this next topic. I would love to make lively and fun and exciting. Jerry there, there's a just, it's a it's a tad issue. But I'm seeing more and more. What we call special needs issues. Now, I've been in this industry for over thirty years. And maybe it's just nobody wanted to talk to a twenty one year old or twenty five year old about autism or handicapped issues or those kind of things. Maybe we didn't know as much as we do now, or maybe it's more prevalent or maybe it's more prevalent. Right. I'm not gonna go there. Right, would I am going to tell you is special needs come from multiple circumstance? And a lot of people ignore one side of the issue. So obviously kids that are special needs autism, having a cerebral palsy, whatever that happens to be where they are getting a Medicaid type of assistance, you need to be aware of some things, and we're going to talk through a few of those things that, that you need to understand, and be aware of, but the other side of this is assets are becoming larger and larger and larger that are being transferred to that next generation. Right. And it truly is an enabling issue when you've got somebody who's making, you know, they're twenty five or thirty five years old, and they're starting to family, and they're in their living, you know, hopefully not paycheck to paycheck, but pretty darn close, and they don't have a lot of assets. And all of a sudden, dad dies, and they get a million dollar check in the mail. I see bad things happen with that all the time, right? When I set up trust for people when I work with. Our attorneys. I'm not an attorney don't pretend to play one. But one of the things that I build into the trust planning work that we do for our families is a special needs clause for all kids. Not just for once that have mental deficiencies. It's ones that said, okay, we're going to give you opportunities to take responsibility, but also opportunities to mess up in a be okay because we've got your backside and other ways. And I think that's a critical thing. We've helped a lot of families go in that direction. I'm going to run this through with with the with special needs issue, though, you know, it's, it's a big part of what you have to deal with. This is a sensually three different issues if you will. And then there's the fourth elephant in the room as they say, which is the emotional side, emotionally. I've heard this statement used retirement for three. So it's me barb and one of my kids if they were special needs issue. Right. You cannot. You cannot get rid of that emotional burden who's going to take care of that person. Right. When we had a mentally handicapped kid that went to church with us for twenty years. And I know that was dad's biggest concern certainly that no other siblings. What happens to him when we're gone. And, you know, it's an issue the big thing on the legal side is understanding that we live in a changing environment. Right. So especially if you move states understand, understand, that Medicare is a national program. Medicaid. Is a state plan. So Medicaid is different in Indiana than it is in Ohio. No higher than it is in Illinois. So when you move from when you set up a, a special needs trust what you hear people like me tell you as trust travel from state to state. That is very, very true. But a special needs trust is written in such a manner that it complies with the Medicaid rules inside of a particular states route. So I don't want to want to confuse anybody generally, you've gotta have laughed at in two thousand dollars in assets being to be in Medicaid, and generally have to have very low income, but please keep in mind. It is state by state. There are local chapters of the place hold the arc..

Muslims Are Having A Hollywood Moment

"Is changing on American television and online streaming services. There are more Muslim characters and more nuanced portrayals of Muslim communities NPR's Leila Fadel starts to story on set in Los Angeles. It's one of the last days of taping for a new web series called east of LA brea, all ROY. It's a show about being your twenties and figuring out life, and it's told through two main characters roommates who are Muslim, but that's not the entirety of their storylines says Samir Gardezi, the creator of the show it's about paying rent. You know, having a dead end job. I'm having issues with you know, your your family life going to families the first project from powder cake, the company founded by director writer and actor Paul fig known for films like bridesmaids and the recent Ghostbusters east of LA brea follows the friendship of two women a black Muslim and Bangladeshi American will slump in gentrifying, Los Angeles Gardezi says, it's one American Muslim story. There's so many different versions, and my hope would be that everyone gets a shot that tell their version of a Muslim Americans story. So it doesn't feel like, oh, this is the one show that needs to make it all the way. We had to the next location for taping an LA mosque the scene deals with racism black Muslims, sometimes face within Muslim communities. The character. I show Hudson played by Geoffrey Maya is praying when her phone starts ringing with a song like this guy. You gain the director tells the other actors how to react and ladies look at her little shady in the next scene. A woman skull Tessin, assuming she's a recent convert and tells her her prayer doesn't count. We have lessons every Thursday one in conflict with it's something that happens an immigrant Muslim, assuming she knows better. And it's one way the show explores identity, and he's still brea creator Samir Gardezi says he's glad there are more projects involving Muslims. But he says there isn't going to be one breakout moment, but hopefully, there will be many moments and the more stuff that's out there, even the bad stuff. The better. That's that is the flexibility and the privilege that I think white communities is that they're allowed to fail and Hollywood and no one really bad tonight. It's like, okay. It's okay. You can you can jump back up and here let's throw millions of dollars again for you to do your next project. So that's the point that we have to get to. It's a struggle a lot of communities of color and minorities face in Hollywood, the two thousand eighteen Hollywood diversity report from UCLA found that despite progress minorities are still under a presented in key jobs from lead actors to director. Two writers right now, there's an appetite for shows about Muslims in parts because Muslim writers like our daisy who's written on modern family and outsourced are creating their own content and their support for it. He got a grant from pop culture collaborative to create the series and some of the interest is Hollywood reacting to anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment from Donald Trump after he announced his candidacy in two thousand fifteen the Hollywood bureau of the Muslim public Affairs Council got a lot more popular the phones were ringing off the hook that sue Abadie. She leaves the bureau and consults with studios and production companies on creating more authentic Muslim characters were up against decades of storytelling. That is inaccurate many times that is racist often and very stereotypical among the tropes women are chattel and don't have identities or Muslims only portrayed as the gas station owner or the taxi driver Obeidi says, it's an uphill battle. But today the list of characters on mainstream television. In is longer than she's ever seen a Muslim third on Grey's anatomy, a superhero on DC legends of tomorrow, a LGBTQ hijab e Muslim on on the bowl type a pork loving alcohol. Drinking Muslim on master of none. When writers come to her for advice. Obeidi reminds them that these Muslim characters might be the only Muslim some people ever meet. She tries to help them. Get the language, right? Like scripts that used the term alot Akhbar, which means God is great. So you've seen many TV and film projects that have LA walkabout being used in very violent scenes how baiting a Goshi it's studios to try to get them to change it translated or offset it with happy scenes like saying God is great at a wedding or a dinner party because for Muslims. It's a beautiful phrase portrayed as ugly. You know? So someone Sears hook bud when they're dining out. And all of a sudden, you know, they're calling nine one one because they think of family is doing. Something bad. When all they're saying is God that was a damn good meal hawk bud. And I've eighties excited by many of the projects now being written by and about Muslims for large audiences. There's soons eight a Palestinian American comic with cerebral palsy writing an autobiographical sitcom for ABC Moammar a comic with the recent Netflix special and Rami Yousef who I met on a night. He's headlining at the Hollywood, improv. He jokes about how in L A's. Suddenly people think Islam is cool juice shot of getting some juices ten song. It's woman I'm telling her about Ramadan. And you know, she works in my God that sounds so I wanted to do with this weekend. She said Coachella. The New Jersey native is following in the path of many comics who've gone from stand up to sitcom like Seinfeld. Rami Yousef is writing ten episodes of show cult Rami for Hulu it will reflect who use of is in gypsy in American a practicing Muslim who like most people wrestles with trying to be good after a stand up performance. He jokes about how he and his friends approach religion a little like a menu. We call it a LA carte where we're all kind of just picking and choosing like wool. This is my deal with God helps Rami reflects how all kinds of people have their deal with God. I like to get dark. I like to get weird. I like to get uncomfortable. And I feel like when an immigrant family, or when a family that is maybe, you know, group that's not well represented when people try and put them on television. They go out of their way to make them. Look amazing and look perfect his show do that. I just was really excited about the idea of making Muslims. Look imperfect and not create something that was like some PR thing, but create something that was you know, really just a realistic portrayal of what we go through. How we are. He says that people connect with others when they see their flaws not when their hero of villain or exactly like everyone else
