This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ben talks about how travel has informed and enriched his life.
Ben Long grew up on his family's Greenbrier County cattle farm. A graduate of Washington & Lee University and West Virginia University's School of Law, Ben was offered a unique, all-expense paid, year-long travel opportunity when he was 23, and he has continued to travel internationally ever since. He has immersed himself in cultures in Africa, India, China, South America and Central America, and along the way he has discovered a different kind of education. His writing and photography have appeared regularly on National Geographic's website.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
