Hopes, dreams, ambitions...
besides being synonymous they all have another thing in common; they all have been ridiculed and undermined one way or the other.
Because we know how hard it is to pursue something when everything around you is hindering you and obstructing you, TEDxYouth@ALS will be holding a whole day event on Friday 14th of February presenting a bunch of speakers with a couple of performances in between.
A multitude of stories and experiences of people who dared to defy the barriers and mute all the voices of people who say “you can’t do it” will be shared.
