Jessica Duque Posted about 1 year ago Neil Pasricha: What do you do to make your life awesome? Extended until 2016* My life has become more awesome since I discovered TED. There's so much negativity in the world that can consume us and leave one feeling hopeless, which is why I stopped watching news programs, but these conferences are evidence that there are real people from all backgrounds and socio-economic classes that are making a difference whether they started out with a lot or little. So on my journey, I try to recognize and journal the awesomeness I see in others & the world that surrounds me. I also teach ESL to adults in a foreign country and I use TED talks as a regular tool in the students learning process. It's a great way to spread awesome ideas, encourage innovative and positive thinking and of course learn English.
