In her keynote address at the 10th Annual Diversity Conference, novelist, activist, and commentator Samina Ali described the fear she faced when the birth of her son left her with brain damage. “I was scared, and I was completely alone,” says Ali. “Courage is like any other physical function in your body … each time we exercise our brave heart we are reinforcing our neural pathways for courage.” (University of Rochester photo / J.
