About Ashley Fiolek:

I am a professional motocross racer and I started racing when I was 7 years old. I entered into the professional ranks when I was only 17. I won my first professional motocross title in my rookie year when I was 18 years old. I have won 4 women’s motocross titles in 5 years and I won 2 gold medals at ESPN’s x games racing super cross. I was born profoundly deaf but I have never let that slow me down. I’ve toured the US giving inspirational speech to young deaf students to try and motivate them and to show them that they can do anything. I contribute my time to the women’s sports foundation to help young women’s advance in sports. I have appeared in commercials and documentaries and also on the Conan O’Brien show. I also had a part in ABC families ‘Switched at Birth.’

About TEDx:

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
