What does TEDx mean to me?

Sara Lasio


Could you tell me more about why have you joined?

As a participant of events I have joined because I love community events where I can get inspired, feel positive vibes, discuss about any sort of topic with people that are really there to have constructive conversations, those kind that keep you thinking about something even when you have left the place. I am constantly looking for food for thoughts so I thought that could be a place for me.
If we speak about the volunteering action, well, by nature I have a good source of energy so I decided to address part of my free time to an activity I believe has a good impact on people and has a good purpose behind.

Why do you love TED and TEDx?

The answer can be long but I try to say in a nutshell 🙂 what I mainly love is first of all the fact that they are a big source of information, then I love the room that both give to people to open their mind to listen new concepts, new ideas, or just new perspectives on something they already know. In any talks you can find something that can influence you in a positive way.

What do you contribute?

So far I have been mainly supporting as a volunteer during the local events with what was ad hoc needed.
During the live event 2018 I was responsible for the speakers’ logistic, it was lot of fun and a lot of work at the same time but I totally enjoyed it.

What do you want to achieve for yourself but also for other people?

For other people, be sure they enjoy and get inspired the most during our local events! For myself.. the same 🙂 I don’t do volunteering here for any other specific reason out of the fact that I want to invest my time in something I love and has a relevant impact.
