In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Zina Garrison

Olympic Gold Medalist
Zina Garrison is the first Black female to win a gold medal in tennis for the United States at the Olympics, and her contributions to the game of tennis did not stop there. As a trailblazer for Black women in sports, she coached the Williams’ sisters on their way to win a gold medal in tennis doubles at the Beijing Olympics. As founder of the Zina Garrison Tennis Academy in Houston, she worked to inspire more kids into the world of tennis. For the past 27 years, her foundation has provided an opportunity for generations of children to learn about and improve at tennis. Her incredible experiences have helped shape her into the massively influential person she is today, and we are excited for her voice to be heard on the TEDxUNTHSC stage.
