FSCJ Media Release

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Join TEDxFSCJ for the fifth annual conference. This year’s event, “Reimagine the (Im)possible,” will examine what separates the possible from the impossible.

Hosted by FSCJ Student Esteban Cano and FSCJ Alumna Tina Kappel, Reimagine the (Im)possible will welcome seven speakers who are reimagining the nature of the (im)possible—scientific and artistic, personal and political, technological and biographical.

Speakers include:

  • Marissa Alexander who is an activist for survivors of domestic violence, professional speaker and success coach;
  • Dr. Erin Amerman, an anatomy and physiology professor at FSCJ and founder of Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary;
  • Ron Davis whose activist career was born from the tragedy of his youngest son’s unprovoked killing;
  • Bilawal Khoso, a professor of art, marketing expert and visual storyteller;
  • Mamie Morrow, a longtime educator who now focuses on coaching teachers and administrators;
  • Hanan Rasheed who has devoted her life to bringing people of conflict together to promote peace; and
  • Eileen Reeve, a hospice and palliative care nurse who helped develop the Compassionate Ventilator Withdrawal program.

Prior to the beginning of the program, attendees may tour the GET Exhibit, a mixed media installation by TEDxFSCJ Speaker Bilawal Khoso and sample Mediterranean food and refreshments inspired by Speaker Hanan Rasheed.
