A TEDx event is an independently organized gathering full of friendly conversations and TED-like speeches. Luckily, I and four of my classmates together with our teachers were given a chance to participate and interact with the awesome TED community.

Like last year, TEDx was held at ISP (International School of Prague) which is a perfect place for such event. When we arrived, we’ve all received badges and a small brochure with the whole programme. After few minutes of chatting, the first TED talk started. I’m not going to write about all the content of the talks, because you can find them online (https://www.ted.com/tedx/events/21176) and it would take a long time to describe each any every story. However, I want to emphasize how inspirational the event was. Moreover, all of the speakers were so motivating, unleashing ideas from all sorts of different subjects (music, sustainable farming, third culture kids etc.) that I consider this event being the most influential one that I’ve ever been to.

All in all, I would like to say thank you to all the people that made TEDx@ISPrague so great, and especially to my friends and teachers who took me with them.
