TEDxDU Salon will be April 14

Two current DU students and one recent graduate will share their inspiring personal stories at the final TEDxDU Salon.

The student-organized gathering is the third in a series of preview events leading up to TEDxDU in May.

The April 14 event, which is themed “Following Your Passions,” will take place from 6–7:15 p.m. in DU’s Craig Hall.

Speakers will include Andrew Steward, a student who has overcome significant mental illness, Molly Cottrell, a jazz vocalist and alumna Julie Markham, founder of Greenlighted, a start-up company that aims to raise $1 million by offering group deals from socially responsible companies in order to donate a large portion of the profits to charitable organizations.

Roshan Bliss, DU graduate student, will emcee the event.

Seating for the free event — which includes complimentary refreshments — is limited. To register, visit the TEDxDUSalon website.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to “ideas worth spreading.” At TED conferences, leading scientists, philosophers, entrepreneurs and artists present their ideas in 18 minutes or less. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. DU will host its second local event — TEDxDU — on May 13.
