Here in America, we take education seriously. We have programs that are supposed to make your child read before they can even talk, and we have prep schools that give students the upper hand in attending the best universities in the world. We even have countless programs that let education enthusiasts travel the world to spread the beauty of education. What happens when one such enthusiast does just that, and arrives in a place that welcomes them wholeheartedly, but doesn't share the enthusiasm they place upon traditional education?

Baker is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan (2012), where she received her BA in International Studies. After graduation, she taught in American Samoa through the WorldTeach program, and is currently working in Northern Michigan as a substitute teacher. She will be attending Michigan State University College of Law this fall.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

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)
