RUNNING INTO THE DARK
Most of us feel uncomfortable in the dark. Perhaps that's why society is so apathetic to human suffering. But in her TEDX Talk, "Running Into the Dark", GIDC founder Yewande begs the world to boldly confront the issues that represent the dark side of our humanity. She explains that confronting the very issues that scare us is the only way to illuminate true change.
