My Path to TedX with Kayra Martinez, Executive Director of Love Without Borders for Refugees In Need

With this week’s episode, Corinna Bellizzi connects one-on-one with a longtime friend in the not-for-profit space who has taken her story through to a TedX stage. They connect on the path from passion and purpose to communicating a solid, single message on the world’s most coveted stage. For Kayra, that process was fairly straight forward, and hearing her particular story may help you realize that getting on the stage with a TedX talk doesn’t need to be over-complicated.
