Working on my Ted talk was a true pleasure because I was acquiring new knowledge the entire way. The majority of my research and preparation for my talk "Solving the Hunger Gap" came from a book called "Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal" (by Tristam Stuart). This book was truly enlightening and gave me the information I needed for my presentation. It also touched me personally because it went into depth about the problems and consequences that arise from wasting food. Due to busy schedules, it was a little difficult to find time to rehearse the talk with my partner, Colleen, but in the end it all worked out! I would definelty like to do another Ted talk next year!! Annie Jacobs
