Working in team towards a common goal and learning from others gives me energy. It also helps me to reflect and continuously grow as a person. I see the power of simple gestures, human touch and giving back to the community as a common thread in my life and also find that in the TedX team. They try to connect people and make an impact and difference in the life of others. I believe everybody can make the world a better place if one chooses to walk in the light of altruism and kindness. Because helping others also drives our personal success.
