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).

She will show people a technique to literally get out of their heads, get over the tricks our brains do and help them to take new, arduous decisions they have never thought that they would make them one day and that’s through a rule Mel Robbins created coincidendntly. In fact , she will show people how to 'OUTSMART their BRAINS in just .......'an 18 year old senior student at EBIS who had gone through major ups and downs during the last year and discovered that she had been living all of her life relying on something that doesn't exist, motivation, was a real bolt came from the blue. However it made her change her perspective, considering taking decisions and how to run her life the way the way she wanted; 180 degrees. How many times did we promise ourselves that "One day, I will take the decision of changing my life to the better whether through hitting the gym, starting a healthy lifestyle, or just studying" and this day NEVER shows up? We claim that the reason behind this is our need for motivation while, in fact, MOTIVATION IS a FAÇADE our brains use to keep us where we are.

A 17 years STEM student who was born in upper Egypt and has quite diverse interests in science disciplines that made him a junior member at the New York Academy of Sciences, a research intern at the National Research Centre, working with a PhD holder on breast cancer research and is currently in internship at Johns Hopkins university. His idea is centered on diverse trials to dig deeper in the baffling science of intelligence. It is more of a psychological-biologically-supported idea with social perspectives. It will focus on some major points, providing a historical timeline for the chronological tries to fit out a concise definition for intelligence. The main outcome of the talk is to trigger people’s minds to think which definition is the most precise one: If it is the multiple intelligence theory or the fluid and crystallized intelligence approach, etc... or even to create a meaning for intelligence in their own words. It also aims to correct some misconceptions about the methodologies followed to measure it.

Her talk will be about selflessness Vs. self-lessness. We were all raised by the concept of that being a selfless person is a good trait that anyone should have, because being selfish or being egoistic could be one of the worst traits we might have and everyone thinks that those traits meanings, definitions and consequences are so obvious, however not many people know about the dark side of each and every trait of these 3 and how a lot of people can live wasting many years suffering from being taught wrong definitions without even knowing! Her talk will cover the reasons- based on personal experience-why someone can be self-less, the differences between selflessness and self-lessness, how this trait can destroy someone if they continue their lives without knowing how to get rid of and how discovering this trait and dealing with it can change every attendee's life 180 degrees.
