What’s our team up to? We’re producing a TEDx event for local high school students.
That means San Diego high school students will be speaking and performing on stage.

Bringing greater diversity into STEM
Being bold when facing constant rejection
The challenges of being a young immigrant
Dealing with the reality of bullying and suicide
Looking beyond SAT scores for college entrance
The benefits, and the cautions, of code-switching
Positive and negative effects of the fashion industry
The interplay of self-image, self-identity, self-discovery

Congratulations to all the student speakers and performers – you were amazing!
