“Embrace the Detour”
Jordan Edelheit is currently studying Public Affairs at The Ohio State University, but more importantly is a social entrepreneur. She is the founder and organizer of TEDxOhioStateUniversity and recently organized a TEDx event at a venue quite different than a university setting. Being a co-organizer of TEDxMarionCorrectional, she spent the past five months journeying to and from prison, making a positive impact within the incarceration system. Her unique combination of time spent traveling abroad, and ironically, the many visits to prison has helped inspire her positive outlook and experience what it means to live a purposeful life. Her newest project, The Driven (www.TheDriven.weebly.com), took her on an adventure around the country which she is excited to share with the attendees at TEDxYouth@Columbus today!
