By Mira Gleisberg - Jan 19th, 2015

TEDxAmsterdamED’s program team spends the better part of a year researching speakers to present their talks at our main event. One way we look for speakers is via our annual Speaker Pitch, where we ask our community to spread the word and let us hear the best Ideas Worth Spreading in education. This year’s Speaker Pitch event will be held on January 11, 2015 in Boom Chicago Amsterdam.

She refuses to be limited by her disability and believes it has been the driving force behind her desire to achieve things.
