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).

Tan Gavriel Lee

Hi, my name is Gavriel and I’m 13 years old. Three words that people have used to describe me are charming, competitive, and determined (although my mother says it’s more like being stubborn). My pre-school headmistress once told my parents that I would grow up to be able to charm my way out of anything (that hasn’t worked very well on my parents though). I am indeed competitive because I love the thrill of winning. Also, I am pretty determined - when I set my mind on something, I can become obsessed with the task. My favourite pastime is to sit back with a good murder-mystery novel and try to figure out who the culprit is before the end of the book.

Teh Zhi Qin

Hello, My Name is Teh Zhi Qin. I am an A-Levels Student that has a great passion for the field of environmental science and anything in the realm of self-discovery and improvement. I see studying the environment as being able to understand the relationships within the natural ecosystems and between human activities and the natural environment. On the other hand, learning about myself and my way of thought is to understand the relationships of my mind, spirit, and body, within and to those around me. I believe that with all the hardships that are to come, learning to fully understand ourselves, the society, and the environment around us, will allow us to find the root of our problems.

Yee Jia Ern

Hi, my name is Jia Ern and I am 14 year-old and I am studying Year 9. I have a great passion for finding out my true self, finding out what I enjoy doing, and finding out who I truly like. I enjoy singing, watching TV dramas and hanging around with my friends, all these things make me feel happy and calm. It lets me escape from all the horrible things that happened to me, whether it is in school or outside. I'm a half introvert and extrovert girl, and I'm shy while talking in public, but here I am to give a speech. And this is because I believe in myself and I’ve built up a lot of confidence.

Zoie Sip Wan Xuan

Hi everyone, I am Zoie, a 14 year old student in Year 9. I’m very passionate about singing, dancing, playing the guitar, y’know all the cliches but my ultimate passion would fall under the category of singing. Even when I was a child, I always enjoyed singing (even though I couldn't sing very well), I never got bored of it. If I were to describe my personality, I would say I'm a very practical, simple, and straightforward person. As for my ambition, I'm all over the place right now, so I don't have a definite answer as to what I want to be when I grow up.
