    Once upon a time, there was a Cuban ballerina who was blind. Her name was Alicia.
    As a little girl, Alicia was a naturally talented dancer. She spent her days filled with hours and hours of practice. She became one of the best dancers in the world. Then when she was 19, a medical condition caused her to lose her ability to see but that did not stop Alicia. She continued to dance and choreograph. She even started her own dance company which became the National Dance Company of Cuba.

    Temple Grandin read by Kat Taylor

    Temple Grandin read by Kat Taylor

    Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought in pictures instead of words. Her name was Temple. When Temple was a girl, her parents realized she was different. Her mind was full of pictures of everything she’d ever seen or experienced. Temple was then diagnosed with autism. In the 1950s, doctors didn't know much about her condition, so they recommended that Temple be sent away. Temple’s mother insisted that she would thrive at home with the right support and the right education. Because of that courageous act, Temple grew up to change the world for millions of animals. Tune in to find out how she did it.

    Our narrator this episode is Kat Taylor, a philanthropist dedicated to restoring social justice and environmental well-being, and building a more inclusive world.
