Theme: Above All Fears

This event occurred on
November 9, 2019
Islamabad, Islamabad

Imagine being in a room full of inquisitive people beaming with positive vibes and inspiration to do something. This is what TEDxIIUI is all about. A gathering of like-minded individuals with one goal in minds; to put up against all their fears. Now, the next step comes in your head, how do we fight our fears?

The answer is glib and simple, the only way you can fight your fears is by facing them!
The biggest fear that kills all dreams and keeps people imprisoned in their comfy little spaces, is; you might have guessed it already, the fear of FAILURE! The fear that stops you from raising your hand in the class when you know the right answer.

The fear that makes you stand at the back for being called out for something you are passionate about. It’s true when they say; if you never try, you will never know. Together lets take a step further towards success, together!
