How I turned my Tourette's tics into art
If you listen to visual artist Jess Thom speak, you'll notice she says the words "hedgehog" and "biscuit" -- a lot. Thom has Tourette's syndrome, but she doesn't let that stop her from finding humor in her condition and educating people about the disorder. In this funny talk, Thom busts common misconceptions about Tourette's and shows how she's turning her tics into toe-tapping works of art.
