there’s an energy that’s buzzing about at TEDxTeen!   we’ve heard from youth that are doing amazing things around the world, including a young man Kimmie Weeks who fled for his life during the civil war in Liberia (where my family is from).   i’m most struck by the current speaker Jennifer Corriero co-founder and executive director of TakingITGlobal.  “i started life with a smile…” she shouts with passion.  

she then begs us to question if we’re still smiling.

are our passions guiding us towards the futures we want to create?

her answer was to provide a platform for those people who want to keep their dreams alive


that’s what TakingITGlobal is all about…
