Itto Outini’s self-determination has carried her from halfway around the World to living her dream. From a journey less desired, her constant zest for knowledge and learning proved to be the ticket out of her circumstances and onto her realizing her dream of working for the United Nations and becoming an activist for human rights and an advocate for accessibility.
Most of us cannot imagine the abuse, abandonment and pain Itto endured along her way. Itto has a story and her experiences are what make her who she is today, a Fulbright Alumna, a United Nation intern, a master’s degree and so much more as she helps others learn and change to help make a better world.
Itto Outini joins Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities studio and they travel along her journey, her present day and her future goals.
You can keep up with Itto on her Itto Outini website where she posts articles and her writings.
