The pre-event support from speaker coaching at BASA was incredible. Help with narrowing down my topic and how to deliver an effective talk was exactly what I needed.
Why did you apply to be a speaker?
I feel that I have a story to share that can impact a lot of lives for a positive outcome.
How has life changed since TedxKidsBC last year?
I’ve since spoken at Roger’s arena and involved myself more in the mental health community as well as continued speaking at other events.
What advice would you give to the 2016 upcoming speakers?
Take it seriously, put in the work to perfect your talk and breathe.
This year’s theme is Regenerate. If you were a speaker again what would you speak about?
If I was a speaker this year, I would talk about reinventing myself and how it takes 1 simple choice to make a change that can impact millions. I’ve done this with my company, although I ‘m not at a million yet, I plan to be!
I have a background in creative english. This year is my first year volunteering for TedxKids@BC, hope there will be many more to come.
