Using Humor to Create World Change w/ Maysoon Zayid

When I first saw this woman, I knew I needed to have her on MarieTV.

Naturally, I stalked her on Twitter and Facebook. When we finally connected, and she said yes to an interview, I pumped my fist in true Jersey style.

Courageous, funny, smart and beautiful are just a few of the many adjectives I’d use to describe Maysoon Zayid.

It’s about what we’re talking about, not what we look like. @maysoonzayid Click To Tweet

She’s a writer, actor, and comedian whose TED Talk “I got 99 problems… palsy is just one.” has been viewed over 5 million times and translated into 37 languages. You may also recognize her from Adam Sandler’s movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.

I love Maysoon because she’s blunt and bold, vulnerable and visionary and never afraid to tackle an issue head on.

If you’ve ever felt judged or marginalized because of who you are, hurt by what others say (especially online), or believed that something you can’t change about yourself is holding you back…

Today’s episode of MarieTV is a must watch.

How To Change The World & Live Your Purpose w/ Adam Braun

It all started in the club.

The music was thumping, the strobe lights were popping and this guy and I were pretty much shouting at each other.

For any movement to gain momentum, it must start with a small action. @AdamBraun Click To Tweet

Fast forward four years. We’re building three schools with that guy I met in the club — Adam Braun — and his incredible organization, Pencils of Promise.

Our school in Laos is complete and has 76 kids registered. The other two schools are still being constructed. And in four short years, my dear friend Adam Braun has launched a global revolution.

If you ever feel like you’re meant for more in this life but you doubt that one person can make a difference, you’re going to love today’s episode.
