My TED story
A friend of mine shared Sir Ken Robinson's talk about schools kill creativity with me. I was so fascinated by it that I thought that this video should be translated in Urdu as well. I started exploring TED website and wanted to ask TED people that how can this be translated and I found that they already have a dedicated section for that. I sent a request to join the translators group for Urdu which was approved. I looked for that video but that was already translated however it still needed to be reviewed which I did.
