Living Beyond Limits: Amy Purdy at TEDxOrangeCoast

Amy Purdy has been through hardships that most of us will never face -- or can even fathom. But what makes her story so incredible is not that fact that she lived a "normal" childhood and spent her high school years as a passionate artist and snowboarder, then traumatically lost both her legs at age 19, but how she has persevered, taking implausible challenges and rising above them.
Today, Amy is an athlete; currently the top ranked adaptive female snowboarder in the world. Amy also spends a good amount of time helping others; specifically those with physical challenges get involved with snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding and other action sports through the organization she co-founded Adaptive Action Sports. Challenging herself while making a positive impact on the world is a true testament to Amy's spirit.

Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

A totally amazing story.

One Of The Most Remarkable People In The World: Raghava KK

Uploaded on Feb 15, 2012
Raghava KK is a celebrated renowned Indian artist. CNN named him one of 10 remarkable people the world is yet to know of. He began his career in art as a newspaper cartoonist, and the cartoonist's bold line -- and dead-on eye for truth -- still powers his art. His work spans painting, sculpture, installation, film and performance, always linked by his challenging opinions on identity, conformity, gender, celebrity, ceremony.

He shows in galleries and performance spaces around the world. He also spends much of his time teaching storytelling through art. Among his latest work is an Ipad book (POP-IT) that promotes multiple perspectives and empathy. He is a two time TED speaker. He lives and works out of New York.

He has collaborated with world famous artists such as Paul Simon, Erykah Badu, Yann Vasnier (perfumer). He was invited to be on a BBC panel on creativity and spoken in conferences around the world. He teaches a course at NuVu Studios, an experimental education project of the MIT Media Labs in Cambridge MA. 

Alison D. Gilbert's insight:
