TEDxUF is celebrating its tenth annual conference in 2019. We have built upon a legacy of ideas worth spreading, and we hope to continue to shape our community with passionate curiosity.
Below, we have selected two of our talks that have been featured on TED.com––we hope you find them as meaningful as we did.

"Just do it — put your feet in the water," he says. "The swamp will change you, I promise."
