Hove was never into performing or the arts until she joined her high school speech team. She ended up writing poetry of her own including the poem "Something Beautiful." Her slam poetry reached thousands of people in Lincoln, teachers started showing it in their classes. About a month after the talent show I was asked to perform my poem in front of my entire school and the local news at a "Stand for the Silent" anti-bullying rally. Hove was on the stage at TEDxYouth@Lincoln and was invited to participate in the adult TEDxLincoln as well. She says, "People are so beautiful and unique. I think we often forget that being beautiful is not simply defined by our looks. Being beautiful is so much more. In fact our differences, are what make us brilliant."

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)
