ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, MARCH 11, 2013 AND THEREAFTER - In this Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013 photo, Rep. Cyrus Habib, D-Kirkland, speaks with lobbyist Jim Richards, right, outside the House chambers in Olympia, Wash. At just 31 years old, Habib has mastered skills to bypass the limitations of his disability, and that has allowed him to trace a remarkable life trajectory. At age 8, he completely lost his eyesight to cancer but nonetheless went on to become a black belt in Karate, a jazz pianist, a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, an editor of the law review at Yale and an attorney at a prestigious Seattle-based firm.
