In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@RMSST, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@RMSST event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Aryanna Davis

RMSST Student
Hello, my name is Aryanna Davis. On March 22, 2007, I was born in Pennsylvania. Growing up with a Jamaican ethnic background, I moved to Middletown, New York, when I was still a baby, where I lived for a few short years. My family and I then relocated to college park Georgia before finally moving to Conyers, Georgia. I am currently a student at Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology. There I received the principals list, won the APA award and placed second in the regional science fair for my category. I have also been awarded student of the month by a few teachers. My future goal is to graduate high school and attend a university in which I can implement fine arts and work towards getting my PhD in psychology.

Bianca Christie

RMSST Student
I'm Bianca Christie. I go by Bianca, Bianca Noelle, BB and many others. I was born to Melville Christie and Natacha Simon-Christie who are my biggest supporters. I am currently a junior at Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology and am known for having a bubbly and bright personality. I have a helper heart as I am an aspiring traveling physician. Since I was young, I knew I wanted to be in the medical field- following my parents' footsteps- specifically to be able to help as many people as possible. My passions are from all over. I love playing volleyball, going to summer camp, cinematography, and much more. I am most passionate about seeing the world for all it is and all it has to show us and this all started with your mindset.

Jaycee Herth

RMSST Student
Jaycee Herth is an avid public speaker, with hopes of being a cooperate lawyer. Her father, Rick, was born with a mild case of cerebral palsy. Because of his physical disposition, employment has often been hard to find based on societal stereotypes. He was self-employed for 20 years, up until the start of the 2020 pandemic, when he along, with millions of others, lost their job. Utilizing creative spark, Rick, Jaycee, her mother Julia, and her siblings Zyla and Odin have created a small family business selling gourmet concessions. The Herth family is currently in the process of constructing a storefront. Jaycee has learned a great deal about the endless bounds of creative spark because that is her father’s main tool – a tool she’s been taught to implement. She plans to continue implementing her public speaking skills and creative spark in college, majoring in psychology with a minor in pre-law of science and technology.

Jerniyah Hawk

RMSST Student
I am a fourteen-year-old student born in Conyers, Georgia. I currently attend the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology as a freshman. My main motivation has always been to understand why we act and think the way we do. I've always had a passion towards mental health. Empathy, critical thinking, and also light- heartedness are skills that many have told me that I possess in a large quantity, so I look to apply those in the future. I want to look more into behavioral science and psychology. In the future, I plan to graduate from Rockdale Magnet and attend a HBCU that offers a prestigious basketball program while majoring in psychology. I plan to study the way we think and other mental barriers we face on a daily basis. While learning and growing knowledge throughout my high school pathway, I will gain new materials and groundwork from my teachers and peers as I grow up.
