Meet the Travel-for-All Team
Accessible Travel Specialist
Tabassum knows disability first hand but has not allowed it to take control of her life. Diagnosed with polio at age 13 months, she has lived with a disability her entire life; however Tabassum has not allowed her disability to pose any barriers in living life to its fullest, and has traveled the world in her wheelchair.
Tabassum is an avid traveler and is passionate about sharing her travel experiences with those who have a bucket list of places to travel but have put a lid on it just because they feel frustrated and overwhelmed at planning and preparation that goes into making travel arrangements keeping their unique needs in mind.
