TEDxMidwest - Community Connection
May 4, 2013 (CHICAGO) -- Through Saturday, May 4, 2013, you can have the chance to watch celebrities, scientists, politicians and activists share their success stories at the annual TEDxMidwest conference.
Two Chicagoans who are part of the conference came into our ABC 7 studio to tell us about their success stories. Zoë Damacela (http://www.zoedamacela.com/) went from rags to riches - from being homeless to being a fashion designer. She speaks at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Emerson Spartz (www.spartzmedia.com) is a young Internet expert, and he'll speak at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, 2013. You can watch streams of their speeches live online (http://new.livestream.com/tedx/midwest) as well as vides of the speeches on YouTube later on.
