Seven Questions with Ali Saeed

Seven Questions with Ali Saeed

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?
