TEDxRedmond - Kara Chambers - Uganda's Invisible Children

Upon realizing that she could have been a slave to Ugandan rebels if only she had been born on a different continent, thirteen year-old Kara Chambers was set into action. Now sixteen and a junior at Redmond High School, Kara's passions have caused a local community to think globally. Inspired by the work of Invisible Children Inc., Kara has been determined to create change in the area affected by Africa's longest running war in history, in which child soldiers and child brides are the fuel to the seemingly never-ending conflict. Though dreaming of future on-the-ground work in Uganda and Central East Africa to personally help the victims of tragic war, Kara utilizes local support to make a difference in any way possible, though primarily in education.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)
