Overall, I had a really great experience attending the TEDxSMU event. I had a chance to blog interviews that I gave to some of the guests and speakers as well as tweet some of the presentations. I also had a chance to meet and socialize with a lot of great people from all professions. Two of my favorite speakers at the TEDxSMU was Tanya Pinto, founder of the charity group Baal Dan and former army general and now the Chair of the Department of Environmental and Civil Engineering and Booby B. Lyle Professor of Leadership and Global Entrepreneurship at SMU, Jeffrey Talley. These two individuals took the time to help those who are in need of help and I commend them both for their courageous and generous efforts and I hope those who attended the TEDxSMU and listened to these two were inspired to do the same. Tanya Pinto went to India to volunteer to help the children living in orphanages and Jeffrey Talley served in the U.S. Army and with over 4,000 engineers and soldiers under his command, rebuilt Sadr City in Baghdad from a war torn area to a community with a working sewage system, waste collection, schools and medical hospitals. Before, TED was a conference about technology, entertainment and design, but now it's more than that now. It is a conference of very innovative and notable individuals who inspire humanity to do great and positive things for themselves and the lives of others.. I really would like to thank both social media coordinator,Jennifer Conley, and Blake Burris, founder of CoHabitat, for inviting me to be a guest blogger for this great event.
