Ideas are the universal language that connects human kind regardless of any barrier.

TED and TEDx global community have made one world out of it: yes, the "World of Ideas".

Those ideas are not perfect and aren't sorted in the hyperuranium as a pretty famous Greek philosopher hypothesized; they come out of rounded red carpets at TED and TEDx events in a tangible, cool and entertaining way, always ready to be improved or replaced by the open minds that will be willing to gift us!

TEDxHakata 2019 "Ideas must go on"....will you push with us?

After receiving education at an international school in Mexico which encourages and deems diversity and freedom high, she struggled to conform to Japan’s ‘one-size-fits-all’ education. This experience and the birth of her son have guided her to the Montessori Method which values the individuality and self-direction of a child. Through her English lessons with the Montessori Method incorporated, she continues her research on the method of assistance which enables every child to find on their own that ‘learning is diverse and enjoyable’. She currently teaches children aged between 3 and 12 in Fukuoka.
