My TED story
A friend of mine first introduced me into TEDx event that he had organized by a couple of his friends in May 2012. The event activity was so exhilarating to me! Great audience, the theme was perfect and it just dawned on me that I wanted to be part of this community of change agents who organize these powerful talks on vital societal issues that affect us daily. This is a platform that is very important in any community segment to showcase approaches that are there for any ills and inspirations that are part of our daily lives. It is worth being in this community. My life has never been the same again.
