Here is my first TED talk. It was a great experience. The purpose of this talk was to highlight the interconnection of the demographic shifts, the disproportionate impact of disparities on children of color and the economic stability of the country. It was my way of re-framing disparities and advocating for social policies that recognizes our inter-generational nature and inter-dependency The hope was to clearly articulate the imperative for investment in under-resourced minority younger population today in order to transform the country for generations to come.
