So many of us are so committed to being leaders, innovators and overachievers, we fear following our hearts and other people. With the growing popularity of social innovation and entrepreneurship, we're creating a generation excited to lead social change across the world. What if, to create change, we have to surrender power and leadership to historically unheard voices? What if, to create real change, we must follow? CMU alum Stacey Monk shares the story of how she learned to follow her heart, and what happened when she decided to follow the remarkable vision of Tanzanian changemaker "Mama Lucy" Kamptoni.
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)
