If you are anything like me, slightly addicted to the internet and social media, you have probably fallen in to that rabbit hole where you watch youtube videos until 4 am and you have no clue where your time went! This usually happens to me when I am already busy and should probably use my time more wisely. This happened to me more then once when I should have been studying. I hope my mother doesn’t read this and if you know my mother please don’t tell her.
One of my favourite things on Youtube is watching Ted Talks, it is a great excuse to waste your time because it is semi educational and very motivating. I have watched my fair share of Ted Talks, but never realised that there are quite a few filipinos that held them!
Now this is really encouraging, for me being on a Ted Talk is a sign of accomplishment and a sign of being a specialist in your domain and having a certain insight in to society, technology, science or business. I had this one teacher at university that was on Ted Talks and we were all impressed and it gave him a certain validity to what he says. Was he the best at what he does? Probably not. Did we listen more attentively? Most def.
So what a great encouragement it is to see this Filipinos on Ted Talk! Guys you deserve it and I hope we see more intelligent, insightful, talented Filipinos on Platforms like Ted Talks.
