A few weeks ago, when we had just entered school after a long summer, a lot of us were quite excited to get our hands into a big project; CAS and EISAP hours being the biggest motivator. For the first week our TEDx coordinators, Ms. Natale and Mrs. Kinderman, could not stop emphasizing the importance of showing commitment and working to a schedule. However, over time, as students such as myself were given leadership positions and started fulfilling our respective responsibilities, we began to take pride in the event; it became part of our daily routine. And coincidentally, our theme happened to be ‘We Are One’! Working towards a common goal has not only brought our team together, but the entire two senior batches and in doing so, WE HAVE BECOME ONE!
At Emirates International School - Jumeirah, some of the key values instilled in us include Leadership, Tolerance, Togetherness and Friendship. Over the last couple of years, many of us students became pioneers in our respective passions - in trying enhance the last years of our school life, we introduced new ideas, created new opportunities and in all brought our batch together. Putting those to together, this event has given us a platform, an audience and an opportunity to share our passions, our experiences and our ideas in order to convey our concept of 'We Are One'.
We at Emirates International School - Jumeirah welcome you to being part of the first ever TEDxYouth Event in the United Arab Emirates, organized entirely by students - come, join us in making history, BE THERE!
