For the second edition of TEDxChoiceSchool the theme is “The Quest For Truth.” This year we will be unveiling the various truths which can't be seen by the naked eye and show us the perspectives of the various speakers who will be the ones to unveil it for us.

This year's speakers are an eccentric bunch. We have a speaker who has overcome cancer without chemotherapy and only her pure willpower to keep her going, A four time national film award winner, A woman's rights activist, a lawyer who, after reading all three of the Holy Books, is a strong follower of Islam and this year's student speaker who will change your view on the concept of beauty.

At TEDxChoiceSchool we aim to break the illusion of lies we are surrounded by and discover a new world in The Quest For Truth.
