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).

Chaoge Wang

Hello everyone my name is 王朝格Diana I'm from Qingdao corner stone Bilingual school and I'm 13 years old. I have very broad interests, such as playing the guitar, playing the piano, dancing and singing. Music plays an very important role in my life because it is a good way to build my confidence. Whenever I play the piano, I will feel very relaxed. In the past, I was a very introverted girl who didn't like talking, but when I got in touch with music, I was totally changed. I become more outgoing and confident. This is how music changed me. Also, I love English speech, for it helps me to be more outgoing and confident and stand in the center of the stage. Today I’m going to talk about labelling others.
