Finding hidden potential in the rough recounts Lerato´s experiences in a former diamond mining town in South Africa where a gumboot dancing group is exposing impoverished youth, particularly young boys, to great opportunities, is providing an outlet for emotional development and expression and is unlocking a hidden human potential. She hopes that more people will seek out the overlooked hidden potential in impoverished communities and the need to develop young boys emotionally.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
