I Knew A Boy: A Human Beingness Story | Dan Terrio | TEDxUWGreenBay

We all have a story. It’s the one thing that binds us all together. Far too often, we brush people off for what you perceive about them rather than getting to see their true self, or their ‘human beingness’ in this case. In this talk, Dan Terrio shares the importance of embracing your human beingness and sharing your stories so others can see who you really are. Dan Terrio has inspired countless youth and adults from all walks of life with his story of perseverance, strength and determination. Terrio began his motivational speaking career while recovering from injuries sustained in a car/train accident that left him temporarily confined to a wheelchair. To date, he has traveled to all 50 states presenting his inspiring story from growing up on an Indian Reservation to working in Washington D.C. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies ’12 and a master’s degree in Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning ’14 from UW-Green Bay. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
