Derick Fage TEDxLaval 2017

The relentless pursuit of happiness

I am so grateful that I was born with a medical issue, as it has shaped the person I am today. It has helped me become a sympathetic, understanding, honest, and kind person.
I have worked hard to gain control over my mind, my thoughts, my actions, and I want to share that gift with others.
