After interrupting a robbery during his freshman year in college, Jacob Green sustained a traumatic brain injury and damage to his visual processing center. His visual impairment and associated light sensitivity requires him to wear sunglasses in fluorescent light environments. After years of insecurity, Jacob now wears his sunglasses at work comfortably and will reveal in his Ted talk what he has learned about himself, others, and public service; and what we all can learn about leveraging that which may be holding us back.
