I've spent the last ~2.5 years working with TEDx and have a deep and vested interest in making TED a truly *GLOBAL* platform. My parents are from Iran and I speak Farsi, Hebrew and un poco Spanish. I have spent a lot of time over the past few days familiarizing myself with your work and I am simply humbled by your invaluable contributions to the platform and exited to join the team. I am interested in learning how I can best support the program and plan to use OTPedia as a resource. Thank you!
