  • 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

    We cannot label others "different" because we are all different. Great speech.

    I'm from that so-called "different" family in my university environment. I love how my friends appreciate and show me I'm worth it no matter how different I'm. I'm just so grateful to hold the appreciation and the support they give to me. for you guys out there, show your difference, and don't make them judge you for something terrible!!

    From a neighbor next door to Venezuela and his people, I can totally agree and applaud Mariana. We can all make a contribution to humanity when we are treated humanely. I came to this country of ours as a poor teenager with great dreams of becoming an engineer and being successful. Well, my dream was realized, not because those who looked down on me but those who opened their doors and hearts and held my hand through my life in this beautiful country of us all. God bless America

    Sempre levo comigo palavras que realmentem me fazem me sentir melhor, ou até mesmo me inspirem; Como os três palestrantes Eduardo Briceno e Maxi Knust que me inspiraram a mudar meu mindset, e a Mariana Atencio que mudou a minha percepção de como eu via e julgava os outros por serem diferente. Uma vez me disseram "nunca se compare com os outros apenas se compare com a pessoa que você foi ontem".

    When she talked about Muslim girl and her reaction when met her . I felt sad because many people don't accept the muslim girl . It is true that She changed her thinking about that girl but many people don't change their thinking about us 🙁🙁
