My first TEDx Event: TEDxYaba 2017

I'm an avid fan of TEDx event videos. It all started when my dad sent me Chimamanda Adichie's 'Danger of a Single Story' TED talk video link. Ever since then, I forage for more videos, especially about technology advancements, and try to grasp where the rest of the world is heading. I can't remember how I got to know, but the minute I found out I would be in Lagos around the time TEDxYaba would hold, I registered to attend.

I was elated to get an invite, and made it a point to get there early. Most of the people that were early looked like green-eared nerds and at first I felt old school, until I started seeing some familiar faces.

The sessions were very inspiring and thought-provoking. The theme of the event was 'Past, Present, and Future', and most of the speakers captured all three spheres of time as best as they knew how, using their various industries for portrayal.

Here are a few pictures I took at the event:
