Music is More Powerful Than You Think

Music is More Powerful Than You Think

#TEDxCK 2016 Talk

Ian grew up in a beautiful country torn apart by armed conflict and insurgency, with neighbourhoods devastated, and bombs exploding steps away. Amidst all of this was Ian’s will to survive, and to gain a new lease on life. His zeal took him on a 30 year journey to find peace and safety, and a place that he could call home. Ian’s talk is about how his will to succeed helped him give back to his motherland using resilience and sheer determination, through the media he knew best – technology and music.
