But is this seemingly innocent fun the culprit behind why one of the core values of being a good person is fading? Take a deeper look into the triumphs and failures of social media and see first-hand the connections and disconnects it creates in society. Learn the secret to being humble, and ultimately how to live a happy and fulfilling lifestyle.
Briella is an exemplary junior attending the Magnet High School. She’s an optimist and a *bit* of a perfectionist, and desires to put forth her best in whatever it is that she does. Many are surprised to learn that she enjoys public speaking, because she loves the opportunity to have a voice and share her ideas. She loves exploring different avenues that allow her to pursue her love of analytic thinking and express her creativity. She is most fond of the quote by Tom Bodett which says that “In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.” She happily embraces that challenge every day. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
