TEDxYouth@HKIS (Session 2)

Our theme is “Exploring Change”. More specifically, we want speakers to talk about changing the attitude and perspective of students in the face of daily struggles and challenges, or changing aspects of their lifestyles. The talks will inspire students to look beyond the typical “school, homework, sleep” cycle that is a problem at our school. This idea of “change” will hopefully shows students about the many other aspects of life, change their perspective on how to approach problems, or inspire them to change something in their lives.
