Serena revealed the mistake to Gayle King at the 2017 Ted Talks Conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Serene:  “I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m going,” . “I didn’t tell a lot of people, to be quite honest, and I’d been saving it. On social media, you press the wrong button and… Thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’ But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to share].”
