TEDxKids@BC: A Review of Modern Day Superheroes

ASHA - Sarah Jamieson's Supheroine alter ego

An amazing conference took place yesterday – TedXKids@BC showcased the extraordinary talent, passion and creativity behind our children and youth.

As part of the Ted team our vision was to invite kids and youth to explore their passions, to live in a world in which they’ve been granted the right to influence decisions impacting their lives. A world in which they stand up with adults as equals and use their creativity and skills to make a brighter future for us all!

My speech was “The Re-Invention of the Modern Day Superhero – The SuperHuman-itarian” and the call for action starts now and I need your help, I cannot achieve this alone.

These Superheroes, these SuperHuman-itarians are the NEW social crusaders sprung from the need of empowerment, the seed of a changing global landscape of interconnection and diversification.

Why Superheroes? Because the explore the global boundaries and allow us to explore our own self awareness as we make our way through life and discover our own truths and offer us a glimpse of how we can dig deep and take the necessary steps to save our world, in a very real way. That time is now!
