Following eighteen months, seven applications across Australia I felt truly honoured and excited to be accepted for a TEDx interview at the University of Queensland.
Dwarfed by the grand sandstone buildings I entered Dhuig Tower building two, level five
Awaiting me in the meeting room was a panel of 4 female TEDx Curators representing a diverse cultural background.
An important part of the TEDx speaker selection process is to ensure that the assessment is conducted through the eyes of mixed and diverse cultural backgrounds that represent the diversity of the TEDx global audience.
My talk will be on the global impact gratitude has on improving our mental health represented throughout the phenomenal The Global Gratitude Chain Donna-Leigh Perfect Movement.
The TEDx curator team loved the diversity of Global Gratitude Chain Movement.
They asked me what is the one thing that people gain from contributing their Gratitude Link (piece of paper 6cm X 21cm) to the Global Chain?
I answered with one word that I believe is so significant in these uncertain times, more than ever...CONNECTEDNESS”
There are 35 speakers to interview from the 100”s of applications and they will notify the successful candidates in the next two weeks.
I didn’t feel nervous, the panel were friendly and welcoming and I feel very positive about my interview.
The TEDx UQ stage awaits with anticipation
