This event occurred on

Decatur, Georgia
United States

Every day we wake up and decide if today is going to be a good day or not but what if we think about if we can be better than yesterday instead. How would we do if we woke up and decided "today I'm going to be better because I am better"? What if? If we think of ourselves as better than before we can dream bigger and better than before. TEDxAgnesScottCollege is an event that will challenge you to realize who and what you can do by simply waking up and saying, "Today I'm better and I'm going to be more than yesterday."
