Ted is for everyone

By DisNameIs_NUGETT - Aug 23 2019

I’m 11 going on 12 and I love Ted Talks. I seem to find so much from them and I spread that knowledge around school. A lot of people at my school find it useful and some don’t by it doesn’t bother me as long as I’m spreading good knowledge. It might be now or later, but sometime in life the kids in my school will look back and realize that they need that knowledge. And that knowledge will turn them into the people that are going to be smart, responsible, mature people. I don’t die it because I want more people to come to me for advice or any other reason like that. I do it so that maybe, just maybe they will take that advice , share it, and make it into something wonderful. I don’t ever look and say that I’m not going to do it because of what people will think of me because no matter what I will continue spreading this knowledge that I’ve gained for the rest of my life. If anyone reads this comment go out and use what you learn/learned from Ted Talks and make a difference.

So cool
