To This Day ... for the bullied and beautiful

By turn hilarious and haunting, poet Shane Koyczan puts his finger on the pulse of what it's like to be young and … different. "To This Day," his spoken-word poem about bullying, captivated millions as a viral video (created, crowd-source style, by 80 animators). Here, he gives a glorious, live reprise with backstory and violin accompaniment by Hannah Epperson.

His inspirational journey is among many that can be found on TED Talk.

About TED: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages

Everything TED supports from its TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Edlesson series — are driven by its goal to spread great ideas. We love TED and hope you will too.
