‘Rising to the Challenge’ – Embracing Changes and Innovating ! | Sonal Goel | TEDxYouth@NMS
“We are all agents of change” said Khushmita Dhabhai, a 16-year-old politician polemic who enlightened the audience about the reality of ‘world peace’ in her informative talk. Raising some very important questions, she asks the audience what their true perception of peace was and why it was still a distant dream for many. Moreover, she goes on to share her own definition of human peace: the emancipation of human insecurities. Khushmita not only answers all these questions but also sheds light on human and social security.
