Ali Saeed feels lucky to be sharing his story at TEDx Winnipeg on June 6. A refugee from Ethiopia and Somalia in the 1980s, he has now sponsored over 100 refugees to resettle in Canada. We asked Ali a few questions about himself and his TEDx Talk.
What is your idea worth spreading?
I want people to learn the difference between “red revenge” and “green revenge.” Torturing people, denying the humanity of others, rape – all those are red revenge. In green revenge, people have to open their heart to others.
