Be inspired by Michael Hingson’s story of optimism and survival and his advocacy for inclusivity and accessibility. Michael is a #1 New York Times Best-selling author and inspirational speaker who has been blind since birth and survived the 9/11 tragedy with the help of his guide dog, a story that America fell in love with.

About Michael Hingson:
On September 11, 2001, a blind man escaped the World Trade Center by walking down 78 flights of stairs with his guide dog. Days later, America fell in love with Mike and Roselle and the special bond that helped them both survive one of the country’s darkest days.
Immediately after the 9-11 tragedy, Michael was featured on the Larry King show five times. To quote Larry King…
“Michael Hingson is an international hero honored and awarded by top organizations worldwide.” This media exposure changed the course of Michael’s life and launched him into a speaking career that has spanned over nineteen years. He now travels the world as a keynote and inspirational speaker that can motivate audiences to action.
