What makes you special? | Mariana Atencio | TEDxUniversityofNevada

  • Published on Feb 2, 2017
  • NBC News journalist Mariana Atencio has traveled the world from Haiti to Hong Kong. In her TEDx talk, Mariana tells us how the people she's met along the way and her own immigrant experience have taught her that the only thing we all have in common is being human. Get ready to 'get human' and embrace what makes you different! Take a stand to defend your race: the human race!
    Mariana Atencio is a Peabody Award-winning journalist, currently a national correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. The Huffington Post called her ‘our Latina Christiane Amanpour’ and Jorge Ramos wrote: ‘Mariana is the next-gen voice for Latinos breaking all barriers.’ Mariana is known for combining in-studio work and high profile interviews like Pope Francis, with tenacious field reporting all over the world, covering youth-led protests in places like Ferguson, Mexico, Haiti and Hong Kong.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    It's easy to see a colourful and positive world if you are part of the lucky ones among the unfortunate people. She has parents that supported and loved her, she has been able to study abroad and learn a job in favourable circumstances that many other would dream of, she is also a beautiful and gifted person. I personally think she is a fantastic human being, but not exactly the one to learn from due to the favourable circumstances shes has been through.

    Nada demais na vida dessa mulher. O herói na vdd foi o pai que lhe deu a oportunidade de conhecer outro mundo. Obama é um entreguista. Trump está colocando as coisas no lugar.

    MGTOW is the philosophy that changes lives, makes you a better person, you stop chasing women, and you only pursue your personal ralization, many men are waking up day after day, they lived like zombies believing a false reality where vanity and vain pleasures ruled them, when you discover this philosophy you take off the blindfold and live with a purpose that is worth it ..! ♂♂♂♂♂♂♂

    I'm special because I was born 32 weeks where there is no hospital and didn't have access to medical help. I first opened my eyes and mouth after 7 days. I'm very special because nature was very fair to me.

    We already know what she said. It's easy to say that when you're gifted and privileged. She's different but different in a popular way. However, it's good that she is willing to do something about it.
