Why do we have a passion to contribute back to our community?
It's a personal choice, and often comes with the sacrifice of hard work over long hours away from family, friends, and other more relaxing pursuits. It also brings its own sense of adventure and accomplishment, especially when you have the unique opportunity of being at the forefront of finding and telling compelling stories about ideas that can truly change the way we navigate forward as humans (not to mention as Calgarians).
We're extraordinarily proud of TEDxCalgary co-founder, long-time and greatly esteemed curator, and friend Rahim Sajan – recipient of the University of Calgary's 2018 Alumni Service award. It's a very deserving recognition of his efforts on so many fronts in our community, including teaching and guiding students by day (Rahim styles himself as a professional "question asker", and has a great talent for it), serving as a University Calgary Senator, and doing all that he does for TEDxCalgary and related endeavours with our community partners like the Cumming School of Medicine.
Join us in celebrating Rahim's contributions: to us, and to many others!
