For August Shitama, his first love was, and is, reading. Reading provides a way for him to reach out into the world and amass the myriad bits of information that his hearing cohorts simply "heard somewhere." Shitama demonstrates the ability to find a voice from books, and what it means to utilize that voice for success in such a loud world. A native of Gainesville, FL, Shitama is a student at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. He plans to major in journalism, with an aim to become a published writer. Upon matriculation, Shitama adopted Steve Jobs' immortal quote, "Stay hungry, stay foolish," as his personal motto. He believes in remaining an eager student of life, and that we should never stop learning.

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)
