Ripple Effect Artists Presents Maysoon Zayid!

"Maysoon shows us her condition by balancing humour with a serious message and as a result she makes it so much more powerful." 

"Her storytelling is simple and in short anecdotes, but always visual, so we can put ourselves in her shoes." 

"Maysoon is always 100% with her audience"
