Theme: Leave A Legacy.

Doha, Ar Rayyān

Legacies can be as grand as a monument being named after you or as simple as being remembered for your kindness.
No matter what course our lives take, we are all inevitably destined to die. What makes legacies so powerful is that even the smallest ones let us extend and magnify the influence we have on the living world even after we are history. As we learn from our past, face life in the present and foster our potential future, these experiences create our unique legacy . This is a part of ourselves that will be left in the hearts and minds of others we will leave behind. Our morals and values, the examples we set and the paths we choose, the decisions we make and the way we lead our lives, create our unique signature in this world.
Most people find the idea of “leaving a legacy behind” intriguing. It is an innate human emotion, to want to feel as though we have an identity and that our place on this earth truly matters.

TEDxBirlaPublicSchool would like to call forth this very emotion in our youth, and ask them “What’s your legacy?”
