This Saturday and Sunday, TEDx communities across the globe will be celebrating TEDxYouthDay, a weekend of TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and to celebrate, we’re featuring some of our favorite TEDx Talks from young people. Below, three great TEDx Talks from kids you have to watch.
The 8-year-old looking to make your outlook a little sweeter at TEDxEncinitas
While visiting the beach with her family to see sea lions, 8-year-old Senna noticed something amiss with the pups — they were too skinny, starving and dying. Upset but determined to help, she created a fundraiser and traveled to speak at events to raise awareness about the issue. Her message is simple — if something in life is sour, do your best to make it sweeter through action and positivity.
The 9-year-old blogger with style at TEDxCambridge
Tobias Otting reminds us that discovering our passion can come at any age. At 9 years old, he often writes about his own as the voice of the Junior Sartorialist, a popular blog he runs — writing about fashion, lifestyle and everything in between. Otting firmly believes everyone has a voice and that all they must do is remember to speak up.
The 12-year-old with a powerful message at TEDxTeen
A whirlwind of ferocity, listen while Khadim Diop performs a highly emotional spoken word piece on his observations and feelings on life, society and media.
