A couple of weeks have passed since TEDxYouth@Hewitt 2014. As Head Student Curator, I want to thank the rest of the curatorial team, Jessie S., Christina B., Adrien L., Ruby S., and Grayson B., for putting so much hard work and creativity into the day. I’d also like to thank our faculty advisor, Ms. Dore, for the endless effort she has put into TEDxYouth@Hewitt for the past three years!
I’d also like to thank The Hewitt School’s maintenance and security teams for helping us on our late nights and early mornings, and our sponsors, Flick Independent School Dining, The Source, Balloon Saloon, and Kind Healthy snacks for supporting “these ideas worth spreading.”
Finally, and most importantly, I’d like to thank all of you who attended the event or joined us on Livestream. Thank you for your support and making our hard work worthwhile. I hope you have reflected on the day and have been able to identify your world imagined and the steps you will take to make these dreams realities.
We also want to keep you up with some exciting news! The TEDxYouth@Hewitt team has since met; we talked about some highlights of the day and some ideas to implement for next year’s event! TEDxYouth@Hewitt speakers have already talked to each other to make their dreams collaborative. Michelle Joni and Samantha Stephens partnered up last week and skipped around Washington Square Park together and grabbed a bite at OatMEALS! Like we say, TED friends are the best kind of friends!
Look out for more news on next year’s event in the spring!
Never stop imagining a better world!
