"I've always enjoyed learning and new ideas, so I have been watching TED talks for a few years now. After some research, I found that Northeastern University had one a few year prior, but did not continue. If no one was bringing this back, I figured I could work to revive the event, as I believe many are fascinated and highly engaged by these talks."
