Aisha House

Aisha House is a British/Indonesian 14 year old girl, who enjoys reading and going on fun and spontaneous adventures. She loves to write stories about her experiences and is in touch with her creative and emotional side.

Autumn Wang

Autumn Wang is a 13-year-old freshman at Wuhan Sannew School. She has always possessed a great enthusiasm for expressing thoughts through public speech and communication. Due to her upbringing in many different countries, she’s adapted to thinking outside the box and in other people’s shoes. Autumn is also an avid debater that will never pass up a great opportunity to take sides and chat about a burning controversy. Under the rare occurrence of spare time, she’ll usually be found reading and writing stories or at swim practice. Autumn enjoys sharing common topics in her own perspective and allows for her curiosity to steer her path.

Eva Zhang

Eva Zhang is a student at the Maple Leaf Foreign Nationals School Wuhan. Along with some of her friends, her mission is to help others achieve their dreams and unlock their passions. Even though she is a student, she loves teaching others with a passion, which is part of why she entered this TEDxYouth event. TED has inspired her - now it’s time for her to inspire others. She’s also been learning violin for over six years now (unwillingly), but still has yet to appreciate her skills (even though she’s won quite a lot of awards). One thing she does enjoy is writing. Stories, articles, poems, whatever she can type in a Word document is great to her. When she isn’t studying or glued to a computer screen, she spends time talking a lot, painting, and tickling her little brother.

Kate Jiang

Kate Jiang is an ordinary 16-year-old girl currently studying at Wuhan Sannew School. She has grandmother hobbies such as baking and knitting while having the joyfulness and curiosity of a primary school kid that always has peculiar ideas. Both traits are mixed up and stuffed into a teenage girl’s body. Kate also believes in some big dreams that would change the world. Kate has always been interested in issues regarding education. Before she entered an international high school to study, she studied in a public middle school, which allowed her to observe from different angles of education and gave her a deeper understanding.
