TEDxLaf - Manuel Fresenda - La Evolucion de la Meta

Bienvenidos a los EEUU. I came to the US, to Easton, PA with a dream of eventually buying a video camera so I could make movies. I wanted to make movies about social issues, to tell the stories of the marginalized and voiceless people of Colombia. Fourteen years after my first trip to the US I am now and Eastonian. I am a father and an entrepreneur, but my goals haven't changed. I still want to make small changes in the world, and to document the stories that need to be told. My route getting here is much different then what I had imagined so many years ago.Life has two parts, "el camino", the path and "la meta", the goal. A journey and a destination. The most important part is "el camino". This is where you live your life where you fine tune your visions, and where you discover that anything is possible. This is where you fall down and get up, and this is where you create the opportunities to achieve "la meta". Anyone can dream and reach their goal and have a beautiful life on the way. Anyone can, even a young man from Colombia.AboutTEDx, 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)
