Trying to make the world a better place.
Many Fulbright alumni have spoken at or attended TED conferences and programs. My goal has been to work with them and others to spread their unique skills, and to leverage their knowledge, abilities and connections for the greater good. In 2012, I was the lead organizer for a TEDxFulbright event in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
