Juror Profile

Yuriko Oda
People with disabilities all over the world are faced with many different issues. I believe that they can offer a unique perspective on problem-solving and help work on social issues. I am especially interested in the problems of women with disabilities and I believe this project can not only empower them but also bring them education, information, elegance and equal rights.
