One of the most puzzling questions that nearly all of us, if not all of us, wrestle with, as we grow up, and go out to carve our own paths in life, is the question of what to do with the years we have been given in the world we live in. In this talk, Tom Nazario will try to cover several keys that go into the making of a meaningful life and also explain how a meaningful life takes care of other aspects of what one might have been looking for in life when they first started out on this path. It’s a talk about not necessarily building your resume, but instead building your character and making the world better for having been here.

Thomas A. Nazario grew up in New York City, attended its public schools and did both his undergraduate and graduate studies at the City University of New York. In 1975, he received his law degree from the University of San Francisco where he teaches Law. Over his 35-year career, he has taught courses in Family Law, Children's Rights, Education Law, Race Discrimination, Human Rights and Economic Justice and has also worked extensively with inner-city kids in the San Francisco Bay Area. Mr. Nazario's expertise lies in the area of Children's Rights as well as issues related to global poverty. As such, and after the publication of his book entitled In Defense of Children, he has testified before Congress and appeared on many national television and radio shows, including CNN, Oprah Winfrey and the Larry King Show.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
