Speakers

ANKITA UPPUGUNDURI , Director of speaker team   I love the idea of bringing people together from all different backgrounds and uniting for a common purpose - to learn and grow. I think TEDxNortheasternU's goal of getting everyone in the Northeastern community to come together and learn from each other is really inspiring and I can't wait to be part of it! Also, I love watching TED videos so being able to replicate the TED experience here really made me want to join this team.    WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL?  I'd probably be a dolphin because I love the water and the ocean and they just seem like happy creatures.
