Their presentation was pretty cool – including some crowd surfing from Brogan in honor of his birthday. I’ll post the video once it’s available. The audience was a sea of November Project members, with most of us wearing #GrassrootsGear.
The crowd went crazy at one particular section of the presentation – talking about what “fierce” means to November Project. The image of Mary Anna below was used for a visual. Bojan explained how Mary Anna vowed to get in a full stadium tour of all 37 sections of seats – even if it took hours. Below is her reaction when she made it to the top of the last section.
Thanks to Alan Scherer for the awesome photos. (You should hire him for your next photography project!)
Also in the morning section was a very interesting talk from the President & CEO of Perkins School for the Blind. (In a small world moment – I lead Weight Watchers “at work” meetings at Perkins School when I worked as a Weight Watchers Leader back in 2009.) Perkins School is just an amazing organization and the speech was very enlightening to the issues of working when blind.
After the morning TEDx Beacon Street session, I headed home, then jumped in a car to head to the North Shore to see my brother David compete in a ballroom dancing competition. I thought the UMass Lowell team, including David & his partner, was very impressive!
