In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Chris Espinosa

Chris Espinosa is a student from Guatemala, who became an IB student in the United World College, Robert Bosch college, Germany, belonging to the 2019-2021 generation. His interest in sharing his story with fellow schoolmates was born out of facing academic struggles linked to self-discovering the limitations that every individual most overcome. Chris is the type of person who tries to create a positive impact, either big or small, by spreading smiles and optimism. Quoting his experience out of the UWC experience, he stated; “The day I identified that my limitations are set by how I mentality embrace in, my self-esteem started increasing. The day I learned about the insane way our brain works, I wasn’t going let myself feel that my brain is useless”.
