Cara Yar Khan
Welcome! I’m thrilled you are here. My name is Cara.
I am an international speaker, entrepreneurial humanitarian, film producer and aspiring author.
I believe in the power of people to make the world a better place for themselves and others.
From my birthplace in India, to Canada where I was raised, to grad school in Italy and seven more countries with the United Nations, I have grown up all over the world.
I’m a global citizen, Canadian and a 2x immigrant, proud of my Indian heritage. With Indian, English and Chinese parents, my extended family is a full bouquet of different nationalities, ethnicities and faiths, living across 20+ countries.
“I aspire to build pride and confidence among people with disabilities & to break down barriers to foster respect and inclusion among allies.”
At age 30, I was diagnosed with a rare muscle wasting disease that leads to quadriplegia, a devastating chronic illness for which there is no approved treatment or cure. Rather than letting it quiet me, I set off even bolder, breaking down the barriers I now face and shatter discrimination.
