Why did you apply to be a speaker?

How are you feeling about speaking at FHC Inspires?

What was the process of picking the perfect TED Talk topic? 

“When we first made the sheets, I chose one about school, and only wrote down my current one as a backup answer, but when Mr. George showed who had what topic, I saw the backup one next to my name, and that’s how it all started.”
