This talk resonated very deeply in part because so much of the media I consume. Of the Marvel and DC heroes, Batman and Ironman, two billionaires who are brilliant, resourceful, and psychologically broken are my idols. I love Sherlock Holmes and Frank Underwood for their insights into the frailty of human goodness. Maybe I should reconsider.
A spoken word piece at TEDxUGA which I enjoyed.
My first in person TEDxUGA was last year. I returned again this year. It opened with this spoken word poem to set this year’s theme: Illuminate.
This is the first TED Talk I get to post because I know the speaker rather than just know of them. Rebeka was originally a new employee in training who really did not need it. Over the past few years we’ve followed each other through social media, so I was aware of the elements of this story. So I am glad she got the opportunity to put it all together through a venue like TEDx.
I look forward to seeing what she does in the future.
