Eyra AbrahamVisionary Entrepreneur

Hello!

/ I’m Eyra Abraham

In my work as a founder of an AI tech company, consultant, and speaker, I devote my time to democratising access to information and greater participation from marginalised communities.

My mission is to advance technology, particularly AI, to positively impact people with disability to gain equal access at home, at work and in our community.

Believe in oneself and knowing who you are, that’s the foundation of everything great.
