University of Denver senior Jesse Martin was a featured speaker at the TEDxDU Xpress: Overcoming Adversity event held Thursday on the DU campus. Over 200 people attended the seminar.
Martin gave a powerful speech about his life-changing experience for close to 30 minutes. Even if you knew many of the details of his neck injury suffered in North Dakota last year, its gripping to hear his version as events unfolded. Even more stunning is his perspective on life and the people who influenced him in the weeks following the injury.
