About Yunhee


I'm always interested in "Change and Challenge" for my community in my life. I think IDEA is possible to change my self and my community toward positive direction. Positive direction means sharing feelings, experiences, worthy ideas to me. I don't know how to change my self and others, but I've been changed through organizing TEDx event, and I'd like to change more. Various ideas of member of community can give all people great inspiration. On the other hand, I'm interested in Education, as my expertise - Special education.Emotional and behavioral disabilities and ADHD have many challenges in their life.I hope to build some strategies for educational and social supports. I think that's why i'm working in Institute of Special education and Rehabilitation Science in Daegu university.

My TED story

I was a common worker before watching TEDtalk of Jamie Oliver.
His ideas evoked inside of me, just like he seems like "speak to me, Go out! and Change and Practical Support your community" I have to do something at that time.
I'd like to share my feeling and experience with my friends and someone.
Now I've been organizing TEDx event in my community since 2009.
I've organized TEDxDaegu event with my friends many times. ;-)
My organizers want to keep this event's name.
The Initiative of "TEDxDaegu" was taken.

Stacey Kramer: The best gift I ever survived
Actually, During I watch this clip I suddenly occur to her, My prof. Lee. she got cancer 3 years ago, but she's good now. I think it's very difficult to think all towards positive direction but I agreed that these experience will be great gift turn over a new life. I hope prof. Lee will treat it and recover soon also Stacey.

Christopher deCharms: A look inside the brain in real time
This is really interesting! it could be possble for us to control of our feeling and thinking while we see our brain. actually we believe that we can deal with our emotion inside our mind. but we don't know how the process works. this is very detailed, i want to know about this more!
