TEDxYouthSeoul - Yeon Park - 08/14/10

Yeon Park Emma Willard School Founder of Uniqueify Project Uniqueify is a word coined by herself. The adjective unique is transformed to the verb uniqueify. There are countless commodities and merchandise in this world that are armed with "beautiful" and "practical" aspects. Someone created an iPod. Women vie for the infamous Louis Vuitton bags. Teenagers walk around with mix-star headphones. These all enrich our cultural lives. However, there are inevitable flaws. They become commonplace and mundane. Considering this flaw, she began her Uniqueify Project to add value of uniqueness. Uniqueify starts with a unique material: nail polish. One thing led to another and a business was born; she set up an online blog, sent advertising emails, received orders, and began to uniqueify other students' iPods and cellphones. Now the first page of her blog boasts the phrase - "Total Accumulation: $435". Nevertheless, the changes this project has brought in this world must not be all about her bank account balance. 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.)
