Hannah Hutchison is a senior Marketing student at The University of Tulsa. Originally from Oklahoma City, she loves both cities for their own unique attributes such as the Brady District in Tulsa and the Paseo District in OKC. She is interested in Digital Marketing, specifically Social Media and Analytics and has completed several internships in this area including being the Digital Intern at SONIC Drive-In Headquarters this past summer and currently at Speakeasy Market Strategy. On campus Hannah is involved in Kappa Delta Sorority and has served as Vice President Member Education, President, Panhellenic Delegate and currently as Gracious Living chair. Hannah's friends lovingly refer to her as a "Marketing Nerd" because she is constantly reading Marketing Books (Recently just finished Jab Jab Right Hook and The Art of Social Media) and articles from sources such as Mashable, Inc.com and Fast Company. Outside of her desire to devour any information she can get on Marketing she enjoys cooking, baking and traveling. Hannah is going to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for Spring Break and looks forward to seeing the Olympic Sights (she loves watching the Olympics- she recorded the entire London and Beijing Olympics).
Hannah's love of TED talks started when she was searching for a spoken word poet and came across the Sarah Kay "If I should have a daughter..." talk. It was then that Hannah started to explore the wider range of videos, and her love affair with TED continued as high school teachers and college professors utilized them in class. She saw how they enhanced learning and inspired new thoughts and ideas. It was last February when a post from a high school colleague popped up showing his TEDxOU speech that she knew that she wanted to bring TED to the University of Tulsa. As part of the NOVA Fellowship, she reached out to Dr. Wood to share the idea and then not long after overheard Katie Snyder sharing her desire to bring a TEDx to TU as well.
