I did it! On Wednesday night, I gave my #TEDx talk, “The Power of the Personal Story,” as part of Amsterdam University College’s official #TEDxAUCollege event. 😊 I was quite nervous, but I’m grateful to have been given the chance to participate and to share my journey with everyone who attended.
This incredible opportunity would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of Ben Nolan, Yana Ahlden, and their entire team of people who have worked for months putting together this exceptional TEDx event. I also want to give a huge thanks to Casa400 for providing wonderful accommodations and to U.S. Consulate General of Amsterdam, Mr. Randy Berry, for sponsoring my travel to Holland. Side note: Secretary of State John Kerry recently named Mr. Berry the “first special envoy for human rights of LGBT persons.” President Obama said there couldn’t be a better man to take on this historic role. I agree!
All of the talks from the evening should be available online within the next 5-7 weeks. I will post the links once they are uploaded! (at Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
