Katrina’s colorful youth and journey led her through 24 schools prior to graduating high school. She didn’t learn to read until the 4th grade. Mrs. Osterberg, a teacher that encouraged better results, took initiative and changed a life. Katrina’s story is one about finding her voice and encouraging others to use today’s technology as a global platform to inspire others and take a stance on issues that matter.
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)
What does social media have to do about the greater good?
We need to all stop thinking so small.
We are playing in a digital world with global potential. Social media has EVERYTHING to do with the greater good! It’s the platform for public voice where lessons can be shared. Does that mean it has to be ‘dry’ like the cracker challenge?
It can and should be flairs of you coupled with what you care about.
Many…………most, would prefer to be brave from afar. This makes social media platforms perfect! Who wants to be face to face with adversity and conflict? Passive is sometimes a smart move, but being a coward is having no voice. Are you a coward or are you just passive?
Whether you want to embrace your voice or not, you have one to share. Your voice doesn’t need to solve world hunger or global human trafficking but it can inspire a positive shift in another.
So I challenge you, what do you care about?
Find some content and share with us and then take one small step to back that up.
Right now I think everyone should check Blindfold Magazine for ideas. I’m just saying… if your not sure what you care about; it’s a good place to start!
Connect with your Greater Good!
I’d love to hear why you care.
