In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Elisa .

college student
My name is Elisa (yes, in case you're wondering I don't have a last name). I was born on October 6th 1996, in a small town on West Borneo. I'm currently in my third year on University of Atmajaya majoring in Accounting. I can say I'm a rare person. While many people are so afraid being alone, I don't mind being alone on most times. It doesn't mean that I'm having a hard time being social, but I simply found peace being alone. Crowded places really bug me, hence I'd rather spend my time on quiet places to read or to binge watch my favorite TV series. Throughout my life, I often got asked what I'm going to do with my life. I would laugh and answer I'm still searching for it. However, if I were to be asked what my goals in life are, I would say one of my goals is to see the world and have a better understanding of life. Also, I hope that we will live our lives to the fullest.

Jemima Christian Utami

college student
A person with a passion to live to the fullest and love to encourage other people. I am just an ordinary person, but I believe that every experience in our life teaches us a lot of lessons, and just grow to be better. I am only 19, but I have learnt that every human being has a specific purpose in this world. I have been through my darkest path when I was a teenager due to family problems, lack of principles, and my immaturity. However, I would never trade those lessons because they make me who I am today. I learn from my mistakes and l want to share the lessons that I learned. Be so full that even though they take and take and take and take, you can still be overflowing.
