TEDxRedmond - Samhita Karnati - Passion, Perseverance, and National History Day

Samhita Karnati may seem like any other Honors student--driven, accomplished, and very busy--but the Redmond High School sophomore is also an unusually motivated researcher. While competing in the prestigious, and highly competitive, National History Day (NHD) contest, the then-freshman beat out 86 other national-level entries in the Senior Individual Documentary category (many from students several years older). She won a gold medal and History Channel's $5,000 scholarship for her documentary, "What Was Promised: Northwest Indian Fishing Rights Debated." She believes that success in any area needs passion and perseverance, and has translated these values into other aspects of her life including competitive swimming, music, and community service. Samhita hopes to continue competing in NHD the rest of her high school years.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)
