Bryana moved to Buffalo four years ago and has been the Manager of Volunteers at Journey's End Refugee Services for 1.5 years. Bryana loves Buffalo and is dedicated to being part of its renaissance through volunteering, blogging and building friendships within refugee communities. She attends the University at Buffalo's Professional MBA program and is a board member of Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo. Bishnu was born in Bhutan and lived there until he was forced out of the country at age 23 because of his ethnicity. He spent 17 years in a refugee camp in Nepal, where he trained all the teachers in the camp, served as a community administrator and volunteered supporting victims of violence. Bishnu resettled to Buffalo in 2009 and works at Journey's End Refugee Services, helping people in his community transition to a new life, find jobs and celebrate their culture.

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)
