The TEDxSouthPasadenaHigh salon is an event open to high schoolers and the surrounding community (teachers, staff, parents, & other members of the community). The salon will showcase TED Talks and speakers from the community that discuss overarching themes such as expectations, self esteem, social mask, judgment, stereotypes, independence, responsibility, and open mindedness. Our goal is to create a setting for students and community members by discussing topics that are relevant in day to day life that may not necessarily be prioritized. Attendees will also have the opportunity to inspire and advise one another in developing solutions to personal and/or community-wide issues that tie into the topics of discussion.
