The image going with the post read, “Oscar-winning executive and columnist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy looks for, as she instructs it, to ‘push individuals to have troublesome discussions about imbalance and shamefulness’.”
It proceeded, “Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy composes,
‘If a door hasn’t opened for you, it’s because you haven’t kicked it hard enough. That is how I have lived my life. I am an accidental film-maker who picked up the first camera after graduating in economics and government.
I believe in the power of storytelling and eliciting compassion and empathy by connecting audiences with people who have the courage to tell their stories. I travelled around the world shining a light on marginalised communities, refugees, women whose resilience in the face of adversity has inspired me to amplify their story’.
TED is a non-benefit committed to spreading thoughts, generally as short, ground-breaking talks (18 minutes or less). It started in 1984 as a meeting where Technology, Entertainment, and Design combined, and today covers practically all subjects – from science to business to worldwide issues – in excess of 100 dialects. In the meantime, freely run TEDx occasions help share thoughts in networks the world over.
