Last week, TED-Ed announced its third cohort of Innovative Educators. Among the 30 individuals selected for the program was Urdu TED Translator Umar Anjum, who hails from Lahore, Pakistan. Inspired by his visits to a center for runaway children in Lahore, Umar became an educator and currently works for the University of California, Berkeley’s study-abroad program in Pakistan.
Umar’s appointment to TED-Ed’s third cohort comes about a year after Armenian TED Translator Kristine Sargsyan was chosen to participate in the first cohort. Check out the links above to learn more about Umar and the TED-Ed Innovative Educators.
