TEDxGeorgetown 2020: Ripples-It Starts With a Drop

Posted in Announcements Events

Join the TEDxGeorgetown 2020 conference from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM EST on November 14th!

This year’s event will showcase how a single drop of water in an otherwise still sea has the ability to create ripples seen remarkably far away from the source. Movement-makers, truth-seekers, scientists, and innovators take on the brave responsibility of acting as that drop. Activists and leaders have created tides of change, artists, scientists and writers have distilled truth, and inventors, creators, and trendsetters have served to transcend currents of progress; yet, despite the different means, they all have created massive ripples.

One of the speakers, Rebecca Cox, will be sharing her story. Here is a short bio about Rebecca: 

“Rebecca Cox (SFS ’22) founded Project Olas, a social venture employing moms in the Guatemala City Garbage Dump community as Spanish language tutors online. In April 2020, Olas won first place in the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Challenge for $10,000 out of 34 teams. Rebecca leads a team of 38 and oversees the operation of 13 Club Olas chapters across the US. Rebecca will be bringing her story to the TEDxGeorgetown stage with a talk entitled “The Language of Motherly Love”.
