TEDxRedmond - Christina Dias - Stopping to Smell the Flowers

Although posting a short poem at age seven is hardly the life changing experience, the day she started blogging, Christina was drawn to sharing her thoughts, ideas, and perspectives on the world, period. Now thirteen years old, and a freshman at Redmond Junior High, Christina frequently updates her lively blog "Merry Go Round" (created in 2009) with her latest musings and strives to give her readers a more optimistic view on life. Writing has always been a passion of hers, however she is strongly inclined towards the arts in general; playing the violin since she was 7, as well as involved in musical theater, both of which she loves. "It's all about expressing yourself," Christina says, "...Never let go of what makes you unique and know that anything really is possible as long as you put your heart into it."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)
