It was amazing, insightful, and you guessed it... inspiring.
Reminiscing about my time there I'm beginning to laugh at the ridiculous way I transformed from a polished creative entrepreneur into a total fan girl. Complete with shuddering and stammering- and worrying about what I'm wearing.

Now I've had my fair share of rubbing elbows with important folks at round tables, conferences, or runways. But while in Brooklyn I had the chance to meet Majora Carter- an environmental activist whose first TED talk can be seen below or click this link Majora Carter Urban Renewal TEDTalk:
Ever since then I've followed Majora, inspired by her determination and ideas of making change right in her community. Her passion to redefine the accepted ways. There I was after her talk, waiting for a chance to thank her for being such an inspiration, and making sure someone was nearby to capture this epic moment on camera. As she reached out for a handshake I jumped right in for a hug. I went on and on about how amazing I thought she was, about the time she put Al Gore in his place, and yes of course I slipped her my card! Oh, and Rebecca was sure to catch a picture for me too! (She doesn't look freaked out, does she?)
