My TEDx is in 5 days! I can’t believe it. To prepare for the TEDx talk:
25 times, I practiced the whole presentation in front of other people, who, in turn, gave me feedback and advice.
At least 1 person per practice came up to me afterwards and told me how much the talk impacted their lives.
50 people talked to me about their relapses (low points) in their lives and what insight they brought.
7 actors/video producers worked together to create an extremely dramatic audio clip that moves the audience.
9 people helped chip in funds to pay for hotel, travel, food, and ground transportation during the trip.
Countless people gave me advice on directions, what clothes to wear, how to deal with the weather, so much encouragement, and more.
This TEDx talk was truly a team effort. Thanks to everyone involved. I am so excited for this.
Let the world know, “Relapse is Part of Recovery!”
The talk is on Saturday, April 7 at 12pm in Tinton Falls, NJ. If you want to go, reserve your free tickets here: https://www.ranneyschool.org/page/tedx-ranney
