TedX Teen: Simply Irresistible

This year, ImageThink had the honor of graphic recording TedX Teen: Simply Irresistible.  Hosted by the We Are Family Foundation at the Scholastic headquarters in SOHO, NYC, Simply Irresistible boasted an A-List of inspired and inspiring youth speakers and performers.

The presenters ran the gamut from Caltech student David Mace and his algorithmic solution to the problem of war; to Caitlin Haacke, whose Positive Post-It Day counters cyber-bullying with cyber-kindness; to Rebecca Dharmapalan, who uses photography to raise awareness of the problem of the child sex trade in the United States.

Between speakers, Reggie Gray and his group, Flexin, used dance to explore the Black Lives Matter movement, and Alessia Cara performed her hit song, Here.

Though they came from many different angles and touched on many subjects, what united the speakers and performers was the belief that simple things–like a kind word or the unifying power of dance–could change the world.

It was a pleasure to be a part of such an amazing event, please enjoy our gallery below.
