Ignite Minneapolis is like a baby TEDx Talk. They choose 18 speakers from the submissions for each round. And each person gets 5 minutes and 20 slides to share their topic to an audience of 700+ participants.
It took me three topics and three years to get to speak at Ignite Minneapolis. My topic: Brain Anorexia – My Addiction to Reality TV.
It was a great experience and I was in such good company. A few of my favorites from the night:
- Nausheena Hussain – RISE: Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment
- Eria Hannah – Visual Diet: Changing What We See as Normal
- Jennifer Kane – How to Take Life By the Balls
