One of the things I was looking most forward to when coming back home was being part of the team once again and doing important work that matters. The below photo is from our 2016 event, Think Next. This Saturday, we had a full-day conference with 1,300+ attendees and 20 phenomenal speakers, who talked about ideas from cybersecurity and 3D printing to accessibility/disability and sustainability. We had more than 5 interactive exhibits during our 3 session breaks, where attendees could interact with the day's big ideas, such as with virtual reality or eye-tracking technology to improve sports performance. I am so proud of what we created.
What you do not see below in the photo are the 40+ student team members that were a critical reason this event was possible. Our incredible team, filled with many new members as well, graciously welcomed me back, showing me what they had already accomplished and letting me play a role in the work they still had left leading up to our 2016 event. As the Experience Director last year, it was a completely unique experience witnessing how professionally and quickly the team worked from a different perspective, as well as how younger team members from my time had stepped up into leadership roles. This year's team had quickly become a family and I could not be more impressed—a huge congratulations to this year's E-Board and team for their dedication.
Since my freshmen year here, I have been proud to be part of the TEDxFoggyBottom team because of the product we create: a platform for a variety of speakers and presenters to share their Ideas Worth Spreading. TEDxFoggyBottom is one of the largest student-organized events in the world and what we produce is a professional, world-class conference that our team is so proud of. I look forward to seeing the continued growth that we have worked so hard to build each year. I am also extremely delighted and honored to be next year's Co-Curator, alongside my friend and our dedicated team, to further the organization and experience to a whole new level—we're just getting started.
If you were at our event, thank you for your support. In the coming months, everyone will be able to see this year's talk online, but we hope that more of you can join us next year.
It's been a thrill to say hello in a totally new way and help users do the same. From the United States and the United Kingdom to Hong Kong, Project Fi is changing how mobile works, thanks to the users who are helping build it into the best mobile service available.
Your help and feedback is invaluable and I truly can’t thank you enough for all of the awesomeness that you bring to Project Fi (as well as my life every single day!).
Thanks for being a Fi TC! #happy1year #projectfi #ghelp #fifamily

I also really liked this quote:

See all the United firsts:
I'm just going to let this coherent, thoughtful piece on speak for itself:
"Technology is already changing the commercial landscape at phenomenal speed; it scarcely needs competition regulators to help it along.
Too often, these interventions are not about trust busting at all, but responding to the complaints of commercial rivals, or defending established vested interest from the shock of the new...
IBM spent more than a decade fighting anti-trust regulators; the process very nearly destroyed the company. But it wasn’t regulators that finally did for IBM’s monopoly of mainframe computers; it was made irrelevant by the desktop computer."
But yeah, you're right, I know little about the EU. /s Ironically, I probably know more than you.
Vision: Create a future in which empowered citizens morally act with integrity and spread happiness.
