About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
I met #Oprah in #Montreal in April via a Pay it Foward Contest organized by #MontrealHomeMagazine I had the chance to tell her about my community work and about #SkateboardsForHope She even mentioned me on stage telling the audience about how dreamers dream big even bringing skateboards to Africa. Mostly, what impressed me was her rags to riches story of hard work, determination and hope. Oprah is inspiring! (at Skateboards For Hope)
