My TED story

I was exposed to TED by one of my greatest mentors, Dr. Faulders. Dr. Faulders was my Philosophy professor and provided an incredible introduction to Aristotle, and the early Greek philosophers. Without Dr. Faulder's guidance and sharing of his new ideas, I would not be where I am today. I know first hand the power of sharing an incredible idea (study Philosophy at Cal) which is why I am such an admirer of TED and its community.
