The theme for TEDxCISM Youth:
Our theme for TEDxCISM Youth is GPS to success. We believe that the youth of this generation needs proper guidance as to what success is, how it can vary into many different forms, and how to carve their path towards their own individual success as it’s their time when they are exploring their own profession and success aligned with their interests. This event aims to help the youth to gain insights and understand how to achieve success in their individual ways.
