Why Speak at TEDxYouth@Hewitt?
By Sydney Sadick
I’m thrilled to be speaking at the TEDxYouth@Hewitt Conference this year. I’ve always believed that age is just a number, so it doesn’t take being an adult or being finished with your education to take a vision or passion and make it a part of your daily lives—and for some turning it into a career. It was a simple spark that transformed my hobby of blogging into a job, something that I work on daily and am continuously developing into a brand, showing how brainstorming and developing a passion can lead to so much more than what one would initially expect. And that’s why TEDxYouth is so important—it’s the perfect opportunity for students to brainstorm and network with one another, which I believe is the foundation for “making it” today. I can’t wait to meet the other speakers and attendees—you never know when the next big idea is going to hit you.
