About this event

Bahria University's First TEDx event. An event worth sharing with ideas worth spreading!
An event that was appreciated by each of its attendee. From brilliant speakers to understanding audience, TEDXBahriaUKarachi had been a soul inspiring event for everyone.
Our speakers tunred out to be role models for our audience. We had on board:

"Its not just humans, even animals are affected by natural disasters." Sharmeen's idea is to empower the people of rural areas to stand and work for their own.

Dr. Adeel Hamad

Dr. Adeel questioned the audience about ,'What is wrong with our Education?'. The dignitaries felt kind of offebnded though, lol.

His inspiring talk 'Struggle is better than the Result' shifted the audiences' entire outlook about life and struggle
