Gray Matter is brain tissue that plays a key role in information processing and influences sensory perception like memory, speech, and decision making, providing us with the capabilities we require to go forth into the world and seek real knowledge of life amidst all it's perils. Gray also represents the border between the known and the unexplored, right and wrong, and black and white.
Often, progress as a society can occur due to our innate desire to explore the frontiers of knowledge and understanding.
'Gray Matter' is the theme of TEDxSFIT this year, stimulating our brains with informed discourse through talks from a diverse array of topics, we aim this year to think better and understand more.

Actor and Influencer
Sheezan Mohd is an actor who’s been a part of 9 serials so far, some of which were Tara from Satara and Nazar 2. He’s known for his commendable transformations and playing every character beautifully and differently.

Despite the mishaps and successes, he is truly grounded, optimistic, respectful and humble. Sheezan Mohd is going to share his experiences while being on the journey called life. He is going to talk about depression and struggles, as someone who’s felt it himself, struggled with it, got out of it and ultimately discovered the importance of self love and peace within.
