The power of defining yourself | Amma Asante |

In this TED talk she asked the question, ‘Who defines you?  Society or yourself?” She is the Director of Bella.  This TEDx was given at TEDx Brixton in 2014.

This was such a powerful talk, because it focuses on the individual defining yourself or allowing society to define you.  Everyday individuals go into jobs/careers and the job/career defines you.  Sometimes we don’t even know how to disconnect ourselves from that job/career.  Watch the video and give me your feedback.  Defining YOU!


Grab a blank sheet of paper.  Now ask yourself the question:  Who are you?  Keeping asking yourself that question over and over.  As you write done who you are, you can’t write down your job/career.  Was it hard not to define yourself as your job/career?
