6th issue of TEDxYouth@Prague aiming on young people, has central theme "Calm/peace". We feel it's a really urgent issue in this quick modern world to take a deep breath and stop for a moment. To talk and discuss the issues what helps us to calm down and be in peace, what brings us peace, or on the other hand, what take us out of peace. Or also talk about adrenalin vs. calmness or what nice could come out from stepping out of our calm and comfort zone:)

Mirka Škubalová

From the very beginning, Mirka was fascinated by the world, traveling and everything. She is a lover of extremes, she certainly is not afraid of the big challenges and is constantly looking for another, no matter what area she is currently dealing with. Whether it's business, sports or life, the word "fear" is not possible to find in her vocabulary. However, in an unfortunate accident, Mirka hurt her backbone, which has for quite some time set her to rest. In her practice as a consultant, she has led her to explore the settings of the minds of people who are not afraid to take the risk and she established the World of Blessing Conference within the GrowJOB Institute. Also, she has recently returned from 250km long trip to Nepal.
