I just now discovered Amy Purdy. I’m probably the only person who hasn’t heard of her. I was waiting for my music video to load on YouTube and was just about to click the “skip ad” button when I started listening to the Toyota ad. I’m so glad I didn’t skip it. I don’t watch primetime t.v. so I didn’t know she was on Dancing With the Stars. I thought I’d share the Ted Talk I decided to watch, instead of my music video. It can wait.
Footnote: after watching the video and then upon a further look-see, I remember seeing some photos of her someplace else, although I didn’t know her name or story. Here’s a post I came across that is a good read: http://motherboard.vice.com/blog/fembots-have-feelings-too-an-interview-with-amy-purdy
