Warsaw, Mazowieckie

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).

And that is why she decided to give a speech on “How theatre shapes societies?”.

She is an IB student and organizes many events like WawMoot 2023. Dagmara feels she often gets lost, wondering what is the purpose of life Words were always her form of self-expression. Whether written or spoken, she learned to pour her soul into words.

Gabriela Janikowska

Gabriela is a third-year IB student at 33 Copernicus High School. From stars through chairs to crocodiles, she spends her time-wasting ink on drawing and writing stories, occasionally dabbling in the world of politics. Coming from a family of magpies, she collects all that sparkles, including glass and crystal animal figurines. During her speech, she hopes to explore the psychological mechanisms at the heart of one of humankind's most curious characteristics: why do we like shiny things?

Iwona Bielik

She was a little bit older than the majority of TedxYouth_copernicusno33 speakers. She is a mother of 2 great young women and a pharmacist by education. Therefore her speech was dedicated to the question, „Does a miracle panaceum already exist, or is it to be invented shortly?”.

He completed specialization training at the Clinic of Plastic Surgery of the CMKP in Warsaw, where he performs a full range of operations in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

For him, plastic surgery primarily improves the quality of life.

Karolina Dąbrowska

Karolina is a student at 33 Copernicus High School in Warsaw. The subject of her talk relates closely to her biggest hobby, watching series. She loves meeting with her friends, cuddling with her pets and reading. She enjoys watching TV shows because it allows her to unwind in a carefree world with a brave superhero and their loveable sidekick.

She is a psychology student, hippotherapy instructor and psychoeducational activist. For over three years, she has been sharing her experience of mental health problems as part of her social media activities and during workshops for youth, where she talks about, among others, the experience of suffering from depression and staying in a psychiatric hospital.

Michał Kryński

Michał attends the 33rd Copernicus high school in Warsaw. His main interests include snowboarding, chemistry, international relations (which includes Model United Nation Conferences) and - first and foremost - films about which he has spoken.

He developed public speaking skills during numerous school presentations and MUNs he has attended.

He is a second-year student at Bocconi University, one of Europe's top 5 business schools. Fueled by his passion for innovation, technology, and business, he's been driven to explore new ideas and take the initiative in various projects. He is an avid explorer of AI and its usage in modern business. As an IB student, he founded the Warsaw Soccer IB League, a unique project that taught me leadership and commitment. As a member of the operations team for the Poland 2.0 Summit in London, the largest startup and technology conference organized by Polish students abroad, his interest in innovation has continued to grow.
