Nancy Giordano

Mentor

NANCY GIORDANO brought TEDxAustin to town nine years ago and has been a big champion for this Youth event – eager to join hundreds around the world doing the same. With a passion for seeing the potential in everything, she loves her work as a "cultural acupuncturist," naturally weaving ideas together to build teams and organizations that contribute meaningfully to our futures.

Carol Reese

Mentor

CAROL REESE is an educator in Eanes ISD and an enthusiastic supporter of the idea that TED talks are not just for adults. After years of inviting speakers with “ideas worth spreading” to her classroom, she and a dynamic volunteer group launched TEDxYouth@Austin, building an engaging experience for area youth. An encourager, connector, and catalyst, she is excited about this Discomfort Zone event!
