Shelene Bryan explores the borders of Status Quo. How becoming uncomfortable can be a start to new innovations. Her message: Don't worry that you might fail. Worry that you might succeed at something that doesn't matter.
The lens through which Shelene Bryan sees the world changed dramatically after she decided to travel to Africa to see if the children she and her family were sponsoring were for real. After that trip to Africa, Shelene gave up her Hollywood career and started Skip1.org. . Shelene believes Skip1.org is not about one person making a big donation. It's about lots of people making small ones, something they can easily skip, and help change the world instead.
About TEDx. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos -- or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos -- sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
