It has been quite a while since I have posted on this blog; my life has been so action-packed over the past months that I have hardly had time to catch my breath, let alone write!
In the past months, I have developed a novel videoconferencing system that aims to provide increased access to healthcare in developing regions in Africa and India in partnership with the organizations the African Medical and Research Foundation and Lokalex; I was elected as the Student Council President of my high school; I spoke at conferences, workshops, and annual meetings for international charities; I went from being the Marketing Director of a national non-profit organization, to the Vice-President, and, now, to the President; I organized a STEM conference for 200 high school students; and I have started working on yet another science research project! All the while, school has been no less forgiving to me than it ever has been. So, I’ve been pretty busy.
But, the very most exciting thing that happened to me over the past few months was receiving an invitation to speak at a TEDx conference. On March 1, I delivered my very first TEDx talk at TEDxYouth@Brampton to a full-house of eager students. I spoke about the importance of educational diversification (see video above).
I hope this serves as a half-descent update for the time being. I’ll aim to write again soon!
