WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Some students at Purdue want the community to see there is beauty in ordinary things. They organized a TEDx talk at Loeb Playhouse Saturday.

The theme was "Art of the Ordinary."

Hosts explained that everyone has something extraordinary to share about their field.

TEDxPurdueU director Aarti Panda said she hopes the event inspires people.

"You don't have to be the best person in your field, but that doesn't mean you don't have something awesome to share that people can learn from. So we wanted to build on that idea and show that like, "Hey you can do this too,'" Panda said.

Ten speakers shared their stories of success. They all came from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
