I would recommend future classes attend this event, it was very eye opening and a great experience. I would like to attend this event again in the future.

The TedX presentation was a really amazing event. All of the speeches that were made had different topics, and were very interesting to listen to. I enjoyed the TedX event, because it was fun to go to with my friends, and it was also cool to talk about the speeches afterwards with them. I feel bad for the classmates that didn't go, because they really missed out on some great speeches and memories. My favourite speaker was Abigail, because her voice and speech was very polished and prepared. Aside from her speech seeming to be the most prepared, her message was straightforward and to the point, without her seeming like she didn't know what she was talking about. Her speech inspired me to use less technology, and to live in the moment with people. To be 'all there', as she said, and to be social without using social networking. She gave us a task; to not use our phone for a whole day, or for a certain time frame. Although I have not tried this yet, it is my next goal to try and see how I feel without technology, and more verbal interaction.
