TEDxMargalla - Sarah Adeel - Home is Where My Clothes Are!

Sarah Adeel is a Fulbright Scholar and a graduate from Rhode Island School of Design, where she was the recipient of the Award of Excellence in 2008. She is also a part of the Social Innovation Initiative program and Persuasive speech at Brown University. Sarah's research project explores the family and community structures in relation to the design of orphanages, examining how a prosperous social structure takes physical form through design. She aims to convert the current orphanage system into "Self- Sufficient Organisms" -- that not only cater to the physical needs but also help the under privileged children to attain self actualization. Since her return to Pakistan, Sarah has been working at USEFP as a consultant. Currently, she is a part of the curriculum development team for the department of Art, Design and Architecture at National University of Sciences and Technology, Islamabad. She intends to develop a body of work focusing on orphanages in South Asia. About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
