I was recently asked to speak at a TedxTeen talk (oh why, thank you very much I DO look like a teenager). The question they asked me was what the “big idea” about Ms. Marvel was.  But for me, it was a simple idea—creating a character we can all connect with.

There’s a whole lot more to the story than that though. How can we use myths to defy myths?  Check out my TedxTeen talk to find out. Hopefully you’ll all find something you can relate to.
