How Thought-Leader Helped Christine Ramsay Make Her Dreams Come True!
Her strong cultural upbringing helped give her a different perspective when her 3-year-old son was diagnosed with Autism Syndrome Disorder (ASD). Her son’s struggles set her on a journey to empower him and others like him. This journey took her to the TEDx stage and has impacted hundreds of listeners since.
“Thought-Leader puts your dreams into a reality.”
“It became my journey to find the biggest stage I could be on, not for myself, but to spread this empowerment for others. That’s how I found Thought-Leader.”

The Stigmatization That Inspired Christine Ramsay’s TEDx Talk
Albert Einstein was considered autistic, but he was the most intelligent man who ever lived.
However, Christine Ramsay’s story was so broad she was unsure how to craft it into a significant package for her audience. So, not knowing what else to do, she turned to the internet and, in her search, discovered Thought-Leader.

Christine Ramsay’s Journey With Thought-Leader
“I felt very much aligned with Thought-Leader’s mission to serve others. It’s not about being on a stage but how we truly enable change. That humanity is what compelled me to Thought-Leader.”
Surrounded by people who challenged and supported her journey and guided by the accountability of her Thought-Leader coach, she knew she could make it to the TEDx stage. However, there were moments when she thought, “This is too big. I can’t do it.” Christine Ramsay’s Thought-Leader community cheered her on and helped her push through her mental walls in these moments.
Then, one year after her Thought-Leader coach helped her begin applying to TEDx events, Christine Ramsay gave her talk.
