I am a BIG Dreamer
The easiness of life
‘TEDxBaghdad started about a dream. My dream, it is what brought me back to my home country. Now, it’s absolutely not about me anymore. It’s about people around me.’ – Yahay AlAbdeli, the initiator of TEDxBaghdad.
What does Yahay AlAbdeli want to accomplish with TEDxBaghdad?
‘After so many years of wars and living in a dictatorial regime, facing challenges every day, I want to show the world that we have enough talent and energy to build a new future.’
Yahays goal is to find unknown Iraqi talents that did small things with big impact to speak on TEDxBaghdad. ‘I’m looking for people who plant flowers in their street to bring happiness. I would like to give those people a very good promotion on stage. They promote the new Iraq. They can tell people: “I’m just a person, I did something beautiful, you can do it too.”’
1. Promote Iraqi talent
2. Connect Iraqi talents outside Iraqi with Iraqi talents inside Iraq
3. Rebuilding the image of Baghdad
