Deeksha Kapoor

IB Student
Her oratorical and debating journey started with TEDx New York when she gave a speech on the history of women’s political and legal rights. It was a pivotal moment for her as she has been a fervent orator and debater since then. It led the path for her to become the debater in her mainstream Singapore schools, participating in a myriad of competitions such as the Asian Debating Championships and others. Most recently, as the GIIS Debate President, she established multiple training sessions and competitions during 2020-21, uplifting the GIIS students’ debate and oratorical skills and creating a succession pipeline for future speakers representing the school. Graduating from highschool as a TEDx speaker once again is a symbolic bookend to my oratorical experience as she steps into university soon. She is honored and highly excited to share her ideas relating to the theme of ‘Fabric of Being’ with her audience.”

Sindhu Shree Muddam

IB Student
Sindhu Shree is a 16-year-old student who has been an ardent lover of debate and public speaking for over a decade now. If she can catch a breather from the utopian standards of IB, she enjoys binge-watching k-dramas and listening to R&B. When she was offered a chance to speak in TedX, her one goal was to ensure that she did not come off as a hypocrite, which lured her to speak about a realistic and ever-present topic in today's age: Toxic Productivity. She believes that our economy, happiness, and the pandemic are all essential threads in the 21st-century machine, and she is excited to delineate the connection of these threads in the fabric that is our attitude towards achievement.
