Anis Mojgani is a two time National Poetry Slam Champion, winner of the International World Cup Poetry Slam, and a National Book Award Nominee. Everyone, he believes, is “invested with nobility,” and he says his parents gave him, “the permission to be oneself, acceptance of who one is.” His goal in life is to simply continue, something that he says is actually quite difficult.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMtHood, where x=independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxMtHood event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Visit TED.com to learn more.
