The Story of 'WE' (My TEDx Talk Experience)

Ruba AlZubi
Posted June 7, 2020 from Jordan

To tell the story of another might require imagination, empathy, research and intellect. However, to tell the story of ‘Me’ requires an open mind and soul, and lots of emotion-ization.

While I strive to learn how to manage and control emotions especially those related to the most unforgettable moments and situations, within a week, I deployed a reverse process to emotion-ize all data and information. I learned how to weave the mind, heart and soul into a story worth telling.

Please read my blog post about this experience:

And here is my humble TEDx talk:

Hi Ruba,

Wow! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm sooo impressed. You did not look nervous, at all! Great job!!

I'm glad that your mission is to re-engineer engineering, to encourage more women, and by default girls, to pursue their dreams and also to bring way more humanity into this profession!

Kudos to you, dear... you rock!

Dear Ruba,

I have seen the video and I finished it with little tears on my face: you were so deeply touching me with your words

In all Countries in different way, we as women, have to humanize science and techonologies ... and even social science
We all can create a better world

Thanks for inspiring me
