TED first came up when a friend of mine told me about these cool new talks that you could download as podcasts. It resurfaced 2 years later when I started teaching, and the talks became my staple for engaging young students in the fascinating road that is life. At that point, I realized TED would have so much more impact if it became a platform for learning for youth. By happenstance, I met another TEDster whom was equally passionate, and we raved about the idea for a good 2 hours. 2 months later, I went back to that TEDster to bring her onto the first TEDxYouth@HongKong team. 4 years later, we're still working together to create opportunities for the young people of Hong Kong. In 2012, I had the opportunity to finally attend TED Global and the TEDxSummit - both of which were life-changing experiences.
