Point of View

BY SAMER TARABICHI
@ VOL 2 ON FEB 27, 2011

Samer shares his thoughts on how you can perceive things differently after you change your angle or you change your position. The whole picture changes, and it affects your understanding and perception. The presentation is about the importance of taking different points of view on things that we take for granted. (in Arabic)
