Have you ever heard of the country Vanuatu? Most people couldn’t even find it on a map. Tess Walraven not only shares facts about the “happiest place on earth,” but also teaches us some of the Bislama language as well!

Tess is an architect currently working at Herzog & de Meuron in Basel since 2013, right after graduating from EPFL. She is of French and Dutch origin, yet born in the USA. Eager to explore various cultures, she has lived in France, Switzerland, Sweden, Colombia, Australia and Vanuatu.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community
