Welcome to Friday Favorites, a new addition to the TEDxColumbus blog.
As we recognized (but not necessarily overtly celebrate) the fifth year of TEDxColumbus, we’ve invited our past TEDxColumbus speakers and other friends to give us their top five favorite talks to in turn, share with you.

We are starting with the favorites of Jordan Edelheit.  Her full bio is below, but suffice to say, she’s the gravity and force behind TEDxOhioStateUniversity and one of the co-organizers behind TEDxMarionCorrectional.   Enjoy her selections below.

 

1. Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story

 

2. Natalie Warne: Being young and making an impact

 

3. Neil Pasricha: The 3 A’s of awesome

 

4. Bryan Stevenson: We need to talk about an injustice

 

5. Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability

 

Jordan Edelheit is currently studying Public Affairs at The Ohio State University, but more importantly is a social entrepreneur. She is the founder of TEDxOhioStateUniversity which now includes an incredible team of passionate students and an advisory board. Since introducing TEDxOhioStateUniversity in the fall of 2011 she has also spent time co-organizing a TEDx event at a venue quite different than a university setting– prison. The past half year was spent journeying to and from Marion organizing TEDxMarionCorrectional, attempting to make a positive impact within the incarceration system. Her newest project, The Driven (www.TheDriven.weebly.com), involved a seven week, 8,344 mile cross country road trip interviewing over 140 social entrepreneurs on what drives their passion. On campus she is involved with the service organization Ohio Staters, Inc which creates projects regarding the traditions of the university. She believes this university is a space of constant innovation and creativity and the intention of hosting a TEDx event is to create a platform to share ideas and let them continue to cultivate and grow!
