I had the privilege of speaking at a TEDx event for a second time, this time at TEDxDayton. Student life was full of outside-the-class involvement and since graduation in 2017, it had been missing. What defined me and made me what I was over the 5 years of student life didn't exist anymore and I was beginning to have an identity crisis, lol. I had been looking for stuff to do after work, stuff to keep me busy and "involved". Planning talks & applying to speak gave me something to look forward to. And finally, after 12 declined applications at various places, Dayton gave me a shot to speak.
Speaking at TEDxDayton was an AMAZING experience. They made us speakers feel like fancy movie stars. I've never signed a 100 posters before; never had a dressing room with my name on it. Never been in front of Hollywood-style vanity mirrors with lamps either.
Shout out to all the other speakers, can't wait to watch all the videos. Hoping all our talks make pass the quality control check and get approved for YouTube. Big shout out to the TEDxDayton team picking me to speak and for the event itself, it's never easy to put an event like together, especially an event with so many moving parts. I know it takes A LOT OF WORK but they made everything seem to smooth and legit. Shout out to Lavanya for the photo. Shout to whoever decided to have Zipcar spots on campus, rental cars FTW. Driving back and forth was fun and all the $$ spent was totally worth it.
Now that that's done, moving on to some other projects. No rest for the weary. The game-face stays on.
