My TED story
My son applied for a licence and decided that since his mother was an Event Planner, it would be a good idea for her to organize TEDxPortofSpain 2011. We succeeded beyond our wildest expectations and here we are organizing TEDxPortofSpain 2012/2013 and counting. What a wonderful struggle. Thanks son.
