Former AAI Guide does TED Presentation

Former AAI Guide, Majika Burhardt has been making a good portion of her living writing about her adventures. She has focused the majority of her writing on the three things that she loves, climbing adventure, coffee and Ethiopia.  In 2008, she published her first book, Vertical Ethiopia: Climbing Toward Possibility in the Horn of Africa.

Recently Majika had the opportunity to talk about her book at a TED: Ideas Worth Spreading conference.  These are conferences where speakers try to inspire people into action.  Majika's gave a passionate speech about climbing in Africa and about how coffee can change Ethiopia in a positive way. The following is a video of that speech:
