The Power of a Wish: Dreaming Big, One Hat at a Time | Jay Corwin | TEDxUCO

12 ratings | 917 views
Is it possible for a wish to change the physical health of a child? Bring a family closer together? Jay Corwin answers with an emphatic, “yes it is!” Corwin uses his light-hearted nature to show us the power of a wish. Jay Corwin serves as the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO). One of his favorite parts of this job is being able to work with students to reach their goals, especially when they seemed previously unattainable. His role has often entailed speaking adventures on leadership, goal setting and going the “extra mile.” He has served as an adjunct faculty member at UCO and the University of Oklahoma (OU) since 2000, and has taught over 7,000 students. Outside of his professional life, Corwin enjoys spending time with his wife, Jana, and two kids, Sydney and Carson. He is also an active volunteer in the community with Deer Creek Public Schools, Edmond Mobile Meals and the OU Stephenson Cancer Center. His favorite community activity is serving as a wish granter for Make a Wish Oklahoma, which he has done for the past eight years. Corwin has a serious Disney addiction that makes him believe there can be “magic” everywhere. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
