Brian Luna – Of Shame, Zippers, and Shooting Stars – TEDxKids@SMU 2015

Talks No Comments

So many of us hide who we are behind walls of shame. We hold back because we are afraid to be vulnerable. Brian shares his own story of shame. He explores how shame holds us back and what we can do to release it by sharing our stories.

Brian Luna was born deep in the heart of Texas, raised in San Antonio, and had high hopes of playing for the Dallas Cowboys until he learned that size and talent were a deciding factor. He left the Lone Star State to go to the Big Apple where he studied at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. No, he doesn’t sing. After appearing on stages across the city, he ventured into film, television, and eventually writing. Being Latino has pushed Brian to create his own work with the hope of representing his culture in non-stereotypical ways. His play, 7th and Eleventh Dimensions premiered at the United Solo Theatre Festival in 2013 and received the award for Best One Man Show. He has since performed the show for a wide range of audiences from parents to high school students. He was a finalist for the TED Talent Search Salon where he presented a talk based on his life and one man show.
