My TED story
I've been an avid TED and TEDx fan for years, and constantly fill up people's emails and Facebook walls with TED and TEDx links! With the help of my friend and colleague, Tosca Killoran, I planned my first event, TEDxYouth@BIS, in 2011. Since then, I have attended many TEDx events as an audience member. I am currently working on building a team for a TEDxYouth event in Kyoto, Japan for TEDxYouth Day in 2013.
