My TED story
I was checking my Facebook newsfeed when I saw a title that caught my attention: Why schools kill creativity. I watched Sir Ken Robinson's talk and was fascinated! I had never even heard of TED! But I knew one thing...this was a talk to be shared on our campus, with my colleagues and students. And I did...and it was only the beginning. Later on I helped in organizing the first public TEDxBeirut salon on our campus, and then went on to get the first university TEDx license in Lebanon. We seem to keep growing, in ways I hadn't fully planned...and this is my ultimate satisfaction. With TED, the connections seem to form without our full awareness..and the surprises make it all the more worthwhile!
