This video features 12 year old Adora Svitak, a child prodigy. It’s clear that public speaking is one of her talents too. Below is a video of a TED talk she gave in February. It’s funny how in the comments section a few people dismissed her ideas. Why? Because she’s 12? Too often, kids are restricted by the limitations of adults. I love that she has not only the talent, but the tools and support to continue learning and growing. She has been given the green light by TED to organize her own TEDx conference to take place in Redmond in December. If you know of any kids from grades 6 through 10 that have something important to say, or want to attend, send them this link. The event itself is being organized by students for students.
