My TED story
I found this website around 2007 and got hooked - I was watching TED Talks on my iPod each night for several hours and I believe that I have watched all talks available back then, it did not matter whether I understood it to the fullest or not, whether it was on physics or business. I also believe this habit has massively contributed to my understanding of others, myself and the world, as I was only 17 years old when I started watching TED. I continued to watch TED Talks throughout the years, follow events and projects. By mid 2011 I became TED Translator, where I translate talks to Lithuanian. Later on I became Language Coordinator. I believe that TED Talks should be shown in schools, public meetings, etc., so it is vital they are subtitled as not everyone has fluent access to another language.I hope that translated talks will spread even more in my home country Lithuania. This is how I contribute to ideas worth spreading.
