My TED story

Working in TED is my long-cherished dream since TED is such a great platform to share the ideas. I hope I can intern or work in TED some day after my graduation. Now I find the TED translation project, I would like contribute two talk translations(one create, one review) every week. It's my secret personal project. I'm also working with my classmate on designing a English-learning book/project based on TED talks.
