Feeling powerless? Claim your philanthropy. | Alyssa Wright | TEDxPiscataquaRiver

"Love of humanity" â€" that's the definition of philanthropy that drew a young Alyssa Wright to embrace a field traditionally viewed as one for the older and wealthy. In this engaging and personal talk, Alyssa encourages all of us, especially the younger generation, to look past "finding your passion" to truly know your story, think big and claim the title of "philanthropist". Alyssa Wright is a social change artist, movement builder and philanthropic advisor, and is the thinking behind Wright Consulting, LLC’s community-driven approach to accelerating social change. She has collaborated in communities such as Women Moving Millions, Resource Generation & New England International Donors, and graduated in 2016 from Cornell University certified in Change Leadership. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
