Eman Osman is Somali and as a 9-year old, she came to Denmark from Kuwait as a refugee. She currently works at the Immigrant Women's center for a project called "Somali Mother's Building Bridge", which is about being active in your own community and helping others who need a bit of support to be a part of Danish society. Her goal is to get these two communities to understand each other better.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
