TEDxSoCal - Ray Ricafort - The Power of a Roadtrip and How It Transformed My Story

Ray's journey with Roadtrip Nation started when he hit the road in New Zealand to interview Leaders from all walks of life, including: hip hop pioneers, the first double-amputee to climb Mt. Everest, fashion designers, and the co-founder of modern bungy jumping. His experience was featured in Season Six of Roadtrip Nation on public television. It was a natural fit for Ray to come back and share his Roadtrip experience with the next generation of Roadtrippers. As the Roadtrip Director, Ray provides grants to those who want to take a Roadtrip of their own--These Roadtrippers hit the road and have life-centered conversations with inspirational people. Equipped with a camera (or simply a pen and paper), the Roadtrippers document their conversations and then share those experiences with the Roadtrip Nation community upon their return. In addition to granting Roadtrips, Ray also orchestrates Roadtrip Nation's annual tour across the country, sending off the movement's fleet of Green RVs to visit hundreds of college and high school campuses, spreading Roadtrip Nation's ethos and involvement opportunities. Ultimately, Ray hopes to empower others to explore, ask questions, and define their own roads in life. Ray graduated from the University of California, Irvine, with a bachelor's degree in Social Science, Public and Community Service. In his free time, Ray can be found producing music and making beats with his trusty dog Earl at his side. 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)
