MUB Lecture Series: Spencer West
Wednesday, November 18
7:00-8:00pm, Strafford Rm
Inspirational and charismatic, Spencer West speaks candidly about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five. He speaks about overcoming stereotyping and bullying, about finding meaning and happiness in a material world and how he never lost the hope or courage needed to mount personal obstacles. Infused with humour and humility, his thought-provoking message inspires people to find opportunity in every challenge. Program sponsored by MUB, Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities and other campus offices.
