What makes you special? | Mariana Atencio | TEDxUniversityofNevada

  • Опубликовано: 2 фев 2017
  • NBC News journalist Mariana Atencio has traveled the world from Haiti to Hong Kong. In her TEDx talk, Mariana tells us how the people she's met along the way and her own immigrant experience have taught her that the only thing we all have in common is being human. Get ready to 'get human' and embrace what makes you different! Take a stand to defend your race: the human race!
    Mariana Atencio is a Peabody Award-winning journalist, currently a national correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. The Huffington Post called her ‘our Latina Christiane Amanpour’ and Jorge Ramos wrote: ‘Mariana is the next-gen voice for Latinos breaking all barriers.’ Mariana is known for combining in-studio work and high profile interviews like Pope Francis, with tenacious field reporting all over the world, covering youth-led protests in places like Ferguson, Mexico, Haiti and Hong Kong.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    "Failing to see anything good on the other side makes a dialogue impossible. Without a dialogue, we will keep repeating the same mistakes because we will not learn anything new." That's it exactly. When we hide or denigrate others on social media, when we believe that one group has a monopoly on compassion or God or women or prosperity or progress or equality, when we subscribe to an us or them mentality, we suppress the dialogue that will bring us forward to a wider view of the world.

    i love the message and it's very good idea, but my believe is to cut down the speech up to 3 minutes. because the main idea was given in few seconds, no need too much details that makes the main idea distructed by non-value adding details.
