The next TEDxOmaha 2018 Time to Engage speaker is Meg Busing and her vulnerable and inspirational talk ‘Yes You Can’ .
Meg takes us on a roller coaster journey that started on a fateful afternoon as a 14 year old pulled from a car wreck. That was the moment when everything changed in an instant. Life would never be the same again, no more basketball, no more slumber parties, no more driving..the list went on and on. More damaged on the inside, she quickly discovered that while some scars heal, the effects of traumatic brain injury don’t go away. “Loss changes you forever, right? From my experience of loosing part of who I am I know how we react is a choice. And my choice is not to let my disability define me” Turning tragedy into triumph, every barrier that is thrown up provides a new pathway. Every “you can’t” is turned into a “I can”. This journey to always find what ‘could’ be achieved, finally led Meg to providing a pathway for others to find what they ‘could’ do, and the founding a non-profit for kids and young adults with epilepsy, to come together to see all they CAN do at the Midwest YouCan Foundation.
