The journey has been long, brutal, emotional, and challenging. Thank you to my two unbelievably dedicated campaign managers, Hedy Chen and Samantha Belardi. Thank you all my phenomenal campaign staff of 103 friends. Thank you to Student Action. Thank you to everyone who was there to mentor, guide, and support us! I look forward to serving the 2010-2011 term with President-elect Noah Stern!
It was an absolute honor to be invited to perform piano at the TEDx Berkeley event! Thank you Jessica Mah and her team for organizing such an incredible conference.
What are the TED conferences?
TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.”
TED was founded in 1984 as a one-off event, and the conference was held annually from 1990 in Monterey, California. TED’s early emphasis was largely technology and design, consistent with a Silicon Valley center of gravity. The events are now held in Long Beach and Palm Springs in the U.S. as well as in Europe and Asia, offering live streaming of the talks. They address an increasingly wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. Past presenters include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Malcolm Gladwell, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates, educator Salman Khan, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners.
