I usually have to just like try to calm down and take a deep breath.
But then on top of that, you know, Sarah Jones told me we only have 18 minutes.
So then I’m like, should I be nervous, you know, because maybe it’s better.
And I’m just trying not to panic and freak out. So I like, take a deep breath.
Okay. Sorry. So anyway, what I was trying to say is that I really love TED.
Like, I love everything about this. It’s amazing.
Like, it’s — I can’t get over this right now.
And, like, people would not believe, seriously, where I’m from, that this even exists.
You know, like even, I mean I love like the name, the — TED.
I mean I know it’s a real person and everything, but I’m just saying that like,
you know, I think it’s very cool how it’s also an acronym, you know,
which is like, you know, is like very high concept and everything like that. I like that.
And actually, I can relate to the whole like acronym thing and everything.
Because, actually, I’m a sophomore at college right now.
At my school — actually I was part of co-founding an organization, which is like a leadership thing,
you know, like you guys, you would really like it and everything.
And the organization is called DA BOMB, and DA BOMB — not like what you guys can build and everything —
这个组织叫DA BOMB，我们的DA BOMB组织比不上你们所创造的这些（伟大的东西）
it’s like, DA BOMB, it means like Dominican — it’s an acronym —
Dominican-American Benevolent Organization for Mothers and Babies.
So, I know, see, like the name is like a little bit long, but with the war on terror and everything,
the Dean of Student Activities has asked us to stop saying DA BOMB and use the whole thing so nobody would get the wrong idea, whatever.
So, basically like DA BOMB — what Dominican-American Benevolent Organization for Mothers and Babies does
is, basically, we try to advocate for students who show a lot of academic promise and who also happen to be mothers like me.
