Big Highlights: The first TEDx in Benin was lit!

Weeks ago, we announced right here, that a big event will be happening in a small country called Benin, located in West Africa.

It happened, and it was all kinds of lit. Yes!

There was magic in the air, emotions were set free, ideas, motivation and pressure.

The beauty of this edition was its diversity in culture. People from different walks of life, different cultures, different experiences, different languages all in one room.

All the speakers gave out their best, but some speakers stole the show.
