Never Lose Character, and Never Lose Yourself.

Never Lose Character, and Never Lose Yourself.

TEDxYouth @ACS.

So... I did a Ted Talk, and I couldn't have been more grateful for the opportunity. I did a Ted Talk! Just the idea of it is crazy... sharing my ideas with the world sounds so simple, but it's scarier as it sounds. Please do watch the video below of my Ted Talk. Sorry for the technical difficulties, especially the awkward mishap with the mic at the beginning. Nonetheless I hope I inspire you to shape your future :)

I'll admit it's scary letting the world have a glimpse of your soul. All of a sudden I was onstage under the burning bright lights, revealing my most personal thoughts and deepest passions. Sure, I document my life on my blog, but this was different. This was my hopes, my dreams, my insecurities, my loves and my hates, my likes and dislikes, and my ideas which I once thought were not worth spreading, but soon realized that my ideas; our ideas, can shape the future.

The theme of the night was 'Shape The Future' which is pretty vague. There were talks ranging from topics like contemporary art, to mental health, to the internet of things. Each ted talk was utterly fascinating in its own unique way. I couldn't help but get goosebumps when everyone passionately spoke about ideas they truly cared about. One of the talks almost brought me to tears. I highly recommend that you go and see your local Ted Talk. They're insightful and fascinating and they will exceed your expectations. I hope you all enjoyed my Ted Talk, thank you.
