Spanish student, who has finished highschool and is going to enter in the business world (looking forward to studying Business Administration + Law). I'm interested in learning languages; I study English by myself, I learnt a little French, I know Latin and soon I'll start studying German. I actually appreciate reading about scientific issues, although I study Humanities; likewise I appreciate reading spiritual essays although I'm not religious, but philosophical. I cannot stand sappy/sentimental romantic books/films, but I love those which make me cry in a particular moment. I'm addicted to difficult philosophical questions and wracking my brain with them, but I hate any other kind of difficult questions. And I admire TEDspeakers because they are able to show amazing facts of our life and those who can show with words ideas that are also in my mind but I cannot sort out.
Reading interesting and jaw-dropping articles, and books than can move me. I'm a keen photographer who loves imagining that her eyes and winks are also like her camera.
Any interesting issue, that could be useful for us. Never say useless, fruitless or vain words because they will not enrich us.
The first talk I came across the net was one of TED's about Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke and the insights she gained watching her brain functions shut down after the other and then her return to normality. I've always been looking for interesting and inspiring essays, books, videos, podcast and anything that could move me and at the same time enlighten me. I found that here, with every single jaw-dropping speech about things I couldn't imagine, and with every moving speech which would always touch my heart. That's why I appreciate TED, and why I dream to attend one of his talks one day.
