Favorite activity of the past year
I spent the academic year of 2016-2017 living in Tours, France where I spent 10 months working with their TEDx team.
That’s me with Clay Dumas, President Obama’s Office of Digital Strategy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor, one of our speakers at the event. We collaborated on his 18-minute speech in English. I also worked with an AI Research Scientist at Facebook on his speech in French!
Finally, I emceed the event which took place at the opera house in front of 700 attendees. In French! It was an exhilarating, albeit formidable, experience that I will cherish forever.
