About Jessie


I want to live my life fullest. I don't like people calling their dream "job" as a dream. Dream is supposed to be something which defines you, not some kind of professional skills you may have. Also I'm very interested in women right and environmental problems. I hope I don't regret my life when I'm dying.

My TED story

I organized TEDxDaejeon as a translator. It was a life changing moment for me. I saw many people inspired by our speakers and view their lives thru somewhat different angles. That inspired me even more and I decided to share more. I'm very excited to attend the first event of TEDWomen and hope I can share more ideas with people from all over the world.

How do we capture the collective wisdom and engage the global TEDx communities?
I think it'll be helpful to put TEDx groups into several categorize and give them spaces to get to know each other. For example, let's make TEDxSouthEastAsia and put TEDxSeoul, TEDxShanghai, and TEDxTokyo. Each groups will have their own network and community, then they will try to bridge themselves to other similar sized groups. TEDxAfrica, TEDxEurope, TEDxAmerica, and so on. In the end, we can expect TEDxEarth.
