TEDxGlobalLearningSchool - Madison Graboyes - The Three of Us

Madison Graboyes weaves together the lives of three girls -- a teen in Harlem, a child in war-torn Liberia, and herself as the child of a homeless mother -- to examine how literacy empowers us to explore the world, share our stories, and "change the world by listening." Madison Graboyes is the Lead Programming Coordinator for LitWorld. LitWorld's mission is to use the power of story to cultivate literacy skills in the world's most vulnerable children. LitWorld advocates for literacy as an urgent human right that belongs to everyone. A graduate of NYU, Madison launched Girls LitClubs, LitWorld's literacy and empowerment workshops for vulnerable youth worldwide, in both New York City and Accra, Ghana, before joining the LitWorld team full-time in the summer of 2011. She currently focuses on the expansion of Girls LitClubs nationally and internationally, the Foundations for Literate Youth project in Harlem, NY, and LitWorld's summer LitCamp program. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
