    Find out how Jess Thom is "changing the world one tic at a time" in this inspiring TEDx talk.nnThom has Tourette's Syndrome and says 'biscuit' sixteen times a minute.

    A visual artist and a graduate of the Royal College of Art, she founded Touretteshero to celebrate the humour that can emerge from Tourette's, challenge misconceptions about the syndrome and encourage people to familiarise themselves with the creative opportunities it presents.nnIn 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
