Though TEDIndia finished two weeks ago, the amazing event with many excellent local speakers from India has been playing in my mind all day. The first Asian-style TED experience has a haunting beauty. The first five TEDTalks will be released from TEDIndia soon. I can’t wait to watch them.
While Tony attended the TEDIndia as Fellow, our TEDIndia report team were working hard writing summaries of sessions and translating bio of speakers of the event.
Now let’s meet the four persons of the group. Jun Li, who is our senior coordinator, led the TEDIndia report project. Zachary Zhao, who is in charge of OPT@TEDtoChina program, joined the team with two writers Gloria Wang and Jingjing Wei.
Like many TEDTalks fans, Jun came across TED accidentally. It was the Last Lecture presented by Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch that touched her deeply, and led her into the fantastic TED world. Since then, she has become a TED evangelist and volunteer for TEDtoChina. Out of the TED world, she is co-founder at RHC International and program manager at AAMA Shanghai Angels. She also writes features for Vogue China.

Jingjing is fascinated with TED. She believes that ‘To travel is to live’, thus travels a lot and keeps writing down every novelty in detail all the way around. When it comes to TEDtoChina, she would like to see more and more friends joining in this big family then sharing brilliant ideas and making progress day by day.
