Words Make Worlds: Dominique Christina at TEDx MSU Denver

Today we our presenting a TED talk by a powerfully authentic women and poet, Dominique Christina. In this talk, she explains how Words Make Worlds. She speaks about the concept that language is a “borrowed thing” that we learn about through our experiences, and how we use words to describe ourselves and to make ourselves whole. Her moving speech asks us to question the language we use to improve our experience, and rethink the way we see our world through etymology. In this way, we have the power to change the words that form our world.
