Being a woman in a developing country in Asia is somehow what you can describe as so hard. It was and is a daunting task for many of us women who have been feeling the weight of the world on our shoulders, so we have worked much harder for the past day, week, month, year and even decade to feel as what we have as out title for TEDxTehranWomen 2019: Bold and Brilliant. Perhaps it is time to unleash the bold and brilliance in ourselves.
It's time to own our flaws and strengths, keep clear priorities, pair our action with knowledge, accept the value of failure, make the most of small wins, solve problems, be helpful, get to work, be generous, take risks, and most importantly, not to fit in a box, build a momentum and SPEAK UP.
The truth is, Bold and brilliance is subjective, what is bold and brilliant to one may not be the same for another; what speaks to one may not speak to another.
People who choose to be bold and brilliant are inspiring not just because they get big tasks accomplished, but because they also instigate growth, progress, and movement for themselves and others around them.

Leila Sadeghi

Fiction-writer and Poet
An Iranian fiction-writer and poet, Leila Sadeghi (born 1977) is part of the experimental creative writing movement in Iran. She is also a literary critic and holds a Ph.D. in the cognitive Linguistics (focused on literature) Program at the University of Tehran and also has published many books and papers on language and literature. Leila Sadeghi's stories do not follow the conventions of commonly written prose. There are several aspects to her stories. First, the language that she uses in her writings is stylistically between poetry and prose, both syntactically and semantically. Also, she makes frequent use of features of language metaphorically. Her stories invite the reader to co-construct the underlying meanings of the phrases that she uses. The ways in which words are strung together in her stories are meant to allow for several layers of meaning to be brought into the text by the readers. The translations of her stories equally try to achieve these points.
