Hannah Brencher Takes on TED

Standard

Our love letter project for the women of Anchal may be complete, but Hannah Brencher’s love letters are just getting started. She’s delivering more and more letters, and her cause is slowly making itself known worldwide. The kicker is, Hannah tells us that the whole idea stemmed from a gloomy moment she was living through as a recent college grad in NYC. I don’t know anyone who has made something so happy come out of a sad stage, and I am willing to bet this video will make you want to get-up-and-go do something awesome today too.

Hannah’s speech is part of a TED Talent Search. If you love it as much as I do, take a moment to rate it on the TED page here so Hannah will have the opportunity to spread the word at TED’s big annual event in 2013.

  1. When I learned what Hannah was doing, I sent HER a love letter. She is truly a visionary, full of passion – what a big heart! Shared on Facebook, commented on TED. Her presentation reminds me, “Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes.” The world needs more Hannahs

    • Thank you for your comment, Marcella! What a great idea to have sent some encouragement Hannah’s way. She truly is one in a gazillion. Yes, you can tell she is nervous to be up there, but she boldly speaks even though her voice might betray her at times. A year from now, these speeches will probably be old hat to her, and then won’t we all be proud to have known her “back when!”
