Brooke Ignet Hocker is the daughter of parents who got their driver’s license just 16 years before she did. In this Tedx Columbus talk, she shares a deeply personal perspective on the uniqueness of the stereotypes and realities of being raised by teen parents. She reports statistics about teen parents and provides an inspiring view that challenges all to set high expectations.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
