My TED story

I'd been teaching public speaking for a couple of years before I watched my first TED talk. It was a big discovery! Since then, TED has become my inspiration, not only because of it's great speakers but of course for it's ideas. And when I figured out that I could do something similar in my city, I did it immediately!
