Anusha Singha

"Each and every one of us here has our own specific personality that was shaped by all our social interactions and experiences. Your current personality could stay the same for ten or twenty years into the future, but certain behavioral characteristics are bound to change as you face challenges in life. Every situation affects your personality, whether it's attending an important meeting or catching up with an old friend. Greetings! My name is Anusha Singha and I'm a student, currently studying in the 10th grade, at GMIS, Jakarta. My hobbies include reading, writing, and sketching. Being introverted, this talk challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and share my views on how the current pandemic changed the personality of people around me. Since these personality traits were built around social interactions, what would happen if they were put under almost an entire year of solitude?"

Student + Occasional writer
My name is Pranay Tiwari and I am a 16 year-old student from Jakarta, Indonesia. Born and brought up in India, and shifted to Indonesia at the age of 13, I had many opportunities and experiences of interacting with new people. Human interaction is an aspect of human life that has always fascinated me because the deeper you go into it, the more the strings of relationship become intricate. There are many other aspects of the world that always attract my attention in a discussion, such as mental pressure, the human and natural environment, human rights, the global development, to name a few. My hobbies include reading, writing, dancing and scrolling thought YouTube. I really like acting and I am showing great interest towards Performing Arts. I have also taken part in the World Scholars' Cup, where my team had been selected to compete in the last round: the Tournament of Champions.

Robert Cruz

Hypothetically speaking, if you knew something were to end, when, how, and why, would that change how you act?
