Ebony Davis — a.k.a Gemini DaPoet — is a 31-year-old poet, published author and motivational speaker who also works as a Consultation Agent for Geek Squad. Born and raised in Muskegon, MI, she witnessed the alarming rate of gun violence and decided to use her craft to help rebuild her city.
Davis goes once a week into Muskegon Middle School with a motivational group talking to at risk teens. She also speaks at churches, prisons, and community events. She prides herself on being the voice for the voiceless, speaking on issues many tend to ignore.
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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
