Have you ever been told that you could do anything you want to do with your life? Teagan Wall explores the rationality of our decision-making process when we are confronted with choices to make, including the choice of what to be when we grow up.

Dr. Teagan Wall, PhD, is an Emmy-nominated writer, speaker and science communicator. She has previously written for "Young Sheldon" on CBS, the Netflix original series "Bill Nye Saves the World" and PBS Digital Studio's "Braincraft." Additionally, Wall is a founding member of the Los Angeles-based Nerd Brigade, a collective of science communicators working to engage the public in scientific storytelling, encourage collaborations between scientists and media, and facilitate events consistent with these goals.

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