As the second annual event comes around, TEDxYouth@VictoriaPark is proud to present another exciting conference with younger speakers. By terminating unnecessary tabs and clutter within their lives, these individuals have made the bold decision to reset their lives and push their risky, but ground-breaking ideas forward.

Please join us in welcoming these innovative speakers to TEDxYouth@VictoriaPark 2020/21. Below are the speakers that you will be meeting and listening to.

Speaker List:

  • Jennifer Bohn - Jen defines a social entrepreneur to be someone who establishes an enterprise that aims to solve social problems or effect social change. Her talk will expand on implicit bias and how compassion can change our perspectives to be more calm, collected, and curious.
  • Richard Lee-Thai - Passionate about human connection, Richard believes that storytelling forms an essential aspect of Indigenous ways of knowing. Come listen to Richard's speech about how to embrace failure through storytelling.
  • Thabo Chinake - What have we been taught to think, and what do we truly believe? Thabo is passionate about gender issues and will utilize his platform to speak about social issues and promote conversations within different communities.
  • Hailey Lu - Hailey believes that often, spontaneous actions don’t follow along with “tried and true” methods. Whether we utilize tried and true methods or are willing to risk exploring uncharted territory, our ultimate goal is the same; accomplish tasks while staying driven, even under poor road conditions.
  • Shaaden Salem - Shaaden is an advocate for compassion-based personal development and is a human connection enthusiast. Within her quest to fully live out her potential, Shaaden will share a personal journey that she has undertaken to truly understand love - not in the romantic sense, but in the universality of finding value in exploring a word that weighs a lot in your life.
  • Arzina Jaffer - Arzina is a strong advocate for equality and promoting the value of service to others. Using Bioinformatics, gene sequencing technologies, and big data analysis, Arzina will elaborate on how we need to adapt to the growing bridge between hard science and data-based technologies.
  • Julianna Svishchuk - Julianna strives to prove that the arts and the sciences can and should exist alongside one another in science-driven educational and professional environments. She feels that expanding the artistic mind serves as a unique advantage for scientific thinking, and believes that students striving to succeed in the sciences should be exposed to the importance of both fields, and their interconnection.
  • Munib Ali - Belonging to the Ahmadi Muslim faith, a heavily persecuted minority group, Munib has grown through members of his family being murdered in cold blood for their beliefs and dares to ask a question to himself, and indeed the rest of his generation: What does it mean to be human? Munib will accentuate his desire to understand what it truly means to be human.
  • Parthiv Patel - Parthiv will speak about embracing the usage of computer analysis and machine learning in a biological context, despite the current stigma surrounding the replacement of human labour by artificial intelligence. The major takeaway will not be about redefining what science is, but rather how science has and will continue to play a role in bringing together modern solutions to some of humanity’s biggest challenges.
