In this episode, we had the pleasure of talking with Cyrus Habib, candidate for State Representative in Washington’s 48th district. Cyrus is a technology lawyer and community volunteer who grew up in Bellevue. He’s a former Rhodes Scholar and Yale law graduate who currently serves as a Human Services Commissioner for the city of Bellevue and Trustee of the Bellevue College Foundation. Cyrus’ accomplishments and accolades are numerous, but perhaps what makes his story most compelling is that he achieved all of this despite losing his eye sight at the age of eight and despite being a three time cancer survivor.
