TEDxKinnaird - Moin Khan - A Different Agenda

About the Speaker:Khan is a recent graduate from San Francisco State University. While he was a full time student he was also working as a professional swim coach which helped him pay his bills all through university. Upon graduating he started working for a Bay Area startup company 'SecretBuilders' but after a few months he felt the need to step out of this 9 to 5 life and live a life that he always dreamed about.Riding a motorcycle then became an escape for adventurism which led Khan to explore the world. A little bit of his craziness and a lot of passion helped Khan trot the globe alone. He spent June through December 2011 travelling from San Francisco, California to Lahore, Pakistan on his Honda CBR F4i sports bike. Bad weather, dangerous roads and a deadly accident, Khan weathered them all on an epic journey that has garnered great support from nearly all the places he crossed. About the Talk:Crashing in Romania enroute to Pakistan on his motorbike made Moin Khan realise that friendships can blossom in the most unfortunate of circumstances. He shares his 'Different Agenda': to meet ordinary people along the way — showing them another side of Pakistan and seeing for himself another side of others'. About TEDx: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)Opening music credits:Imogen Heap and Vishal Shekher - Minds Without Fear
