TED: Stella Young: I’m not your inspiration, thank you very much - Stella Young (2014)

June 9th, 2014

Episode 20 of 822 episodes

Stella Young is a comedian and journalist who happens to go about her day in a wheelchair — a fact that doesn’t, she’d like to make clear, automatically turn her into a noble inspiration to all humanity. In this very funny talk, Young breaks down society's habit of turning disabled people into “inspiration porn.”
