As kids, we're asked to solve math problems. But can basic math solve our grown-up problems?
Uma Adwani grew up in a small town in India that discouraged girls from pursuing higher education. But that didn’t stop Uma from pursuing her dreams.
Uma moved to a completely unknown city to become a primary school teacher.

Uma takes the stage at TED@UPS to share the magic of math – for all of us.
