Maysoon Zayid repeated it twice in our interview, “Just try it,” Just try it,” and try it she has. If Maysoon finds a door in her life she metaphorically kicks out a window and knows how to get herself through it. While she doesn’t want to be anyone’s inspiration she feels happy for anyone who is able to accomplish anything because of something she may have said. I found her unstoppable, admirable, and a woman to listen to. She has appeared on Comedy Central’s The Watch List, PBS’s America at a Crossroads, CNN, HBO, MTV, and 20/20. She was named one of the 21 Leaders of the 21st Century by Women’s ENews, and a 2013 honoree of United Cerebral Palsy NYC’s Women Who Care Awards and those are only two of the honors that this inimitable woman has received.
