I’m excited to share that I will be one of the speakers at TedXEastVan on April 23rd, 2016!

“Dear Eyoalha –

Congratulations! TEDxEastVan would like to extend a formal invitation to you to speak at the event on April 23rd, 2016. We think that you have an idea worth spreading and would love for you to share it live on stage….” – TedXEastVan

It’s been an amazing learning experience, on many so many levels, creating and building the Jump for Joy photo project over that past few years. It all started out as a simple idea: To feel and share joy around the world with photos of people jumping for joy.

This simple intention has grown and morphed in ways I hadn’t even imagined when I set out on this journey. Creating images with people that touch others on an emotional level, creating massive mural projects that brought people from all walks of life together; all with the intention to uplift ourselves and others through the energy of joy, has been the most gratifying and heart opening experience of my life (so far).

In many ways I feel like I’m just at the beginning, at the tip of the ice burg and Im only now, after several years of jumping photos, starting to tap into the potential of what I can achieve with this project.

Many of you have been following along from the start and I appreciate your continued support. I’m honoured that I have the opportunity to share my experiences on the TedXEastVan stage and hope those of you who can, will join us to hear our ideas..

Have an amazing day!

Much love, Eyoälha
