NBC News journalist Mariana Atencio has traveled the world from Haiti to Hong Kong. In her TEDx talk, Mariana tells us how the people she's met along the way and her own immigrant experience have taught her that the only thing we all have in common is being human. Get ready to 'get human' and embrace what makes you different! Take a stand to defend your race: the human race!
Mariana Atencio is a Peabody Award-winning journalist, currently a national correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. The Huffington Post called her ‘our Latina Christiane Amanpour’ and Jorge Ramos wrote: ‘Mariana is the next-gen voice for Latinos breaking all barriers.’ Mariana is known for combining in-studio work and high profile interviews like Pope Francis, with tenacious field reporting all over the world, covering youth-led protests in places like Ferguson, Mexico, Haiti and Hong Kong.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

I've just read Miariana's book "Perfectly You, Embracing the Power of Being Real". To be honest I cried a lot because as an immigrant I could feel the power in every story she shared in her book as some she shared in this TED talk-all that struggle, fear, shame, and vulnerability that we as imigrants carry on our every day lives. I didn't plan to stay here forever, I just wanted to work for two years and save up enough money to pay for my education back in my natal Honduras. But that time never comes and we end up staying because the money is never enough to fulfill our dreams and we have to take care of our families. I am more aware of my dreams and which strategies I need to use in order to achieve them. I didn't have a role model father nor a mother to guide me, I didn't have the tools as Mariana did so she could fulfill her dream, but I do have them now. I may feel too old, too short, not prepare enough or not smart enough and that I've missed my opportunity, but I will do anything to change this chip I have in my mind thay does not allow me to grow, and to start thinking differently. Go shase your dreams Adelisa, as this brilliant and brave Latin woman did and never looked back egain.

The summary of this speech is this verse from the Quran ... ( 13 ) O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted)

Nobody is special. All of you are grown in the same culture like your parents, their thinking, their habits. You use same language, same idioms, wear same sh%t and drive same cr@p. What's unique in you, hey! WHAT you bring to humanity what others couldn't? Einstein - that was different. Mendeleev was different. You're NOT. You're crowd born to fill gaps on streets. Use to it.

I am special cause I have a deep, considerate mind. I really do have it. Many of my friends dont often recognize it, but thats ok My special talent is usually unnoticeable, because only a few have it. While earning this ability, I went through really hard, demanding experiences. Many of my peers who had no ideas of what they were doing, gave me big scars that i should bring forever. But i embraced them and think it is ok, because from that period i have learned how to comfort someone GENUINELY. I have earned a really amazing ability and i consider it my special point.
