Stephanie (well, the second Stephanie) is a junior in Morse College majoring in Mechanical Engineering.

Nina is a first-year in Benjamin Franklin. She is inspired by sleepless nights with Bob Dylan; Irish coffee and poems; fireworks lighting faces of strangers; old ladies selling gardenias on the street; wandering in a foreign city and feeling so lost yet so completed. Nina is an idealist clinging tight to reality. She hopes to connect with you through TEDxYale soon!

Kelly Farley

Web Design

Kelly Farley is a first-year in Morse College. As anyone who follows her on social media knows, she is from Chicago--yes, actual Chicago and not the suburbs--and is overly fond of taking pictures in front of her city's skyline. When not coordinating for TEDxYale, she can be found in the dining hall mixing hot chocolate with coffee to make her own mochas, falling down an internet webhole (usually of TED Talks), or walking up and down and up and down science hill.

Endure McTier


Endure is a first year Saybrugian who intends to major in Cognitive Science and History. She is so pleased and honored to be apart of the TEDxYale team. When Endure isn't busy coordinating TEDxYale, she like listening to music, hanging out with her friends, getting ice cream from Ashley's, and catching up on her DS readings.
