Johann Goethe once said that every single person has the power of art that is able to create imaginary things, the power that wouldn’t let you rest until you express yourself. I consider TED as that power which will let me and the other participants share ideas and inspire for new endeavors.

Whatever we do in life should mean something. That’s why we believe in TED. At first, our dream seemed impossible. There were so many hurdles and challenges. But now it’s becoming a reality. Dreams are only visions in our mind. It takes hard work and passion to make them come true. With our outstanding TEDx team on board, I now believe anything is possible.
