(TEDx Talk with subtitles in English)
Walter Melendrez is a Bolivian ceramic artisan who founded his own business called Cerámicas Walter that produces little people and animal-inspired ornaments and pottery. He won several local prices and acknowledgements due his dedication and impact of his entrepreneurship. In his talk Walter tells the story of his life, filled with tragedy and downturns, but also with greatness and success due his perseverance throughout the years of his work. Still having a humble life, Walter ends this talk by showing which are his next goals in life, which are helping his community and even the indigenous people around the country.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
