Transcending Negative Labels, Stereotypes and Expectations
Mario A. Salinas has conquered seemingly insurmountable challenges. Born with cerebral palsy and afflicted by a severe speech impediment most of his young life, he defied the odds. The (once) stutterer is now an engaging public speaker, valued public servant and political champion.
His inspirational journey is among many that can be found on TED Talk.
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.
