You are not a one-dimensional constant! | Adviti Mishra | TEDxYouth@NMS
Dan Ball Interview W/ Representative For Arizona’s 4th Congressional District, Paul Gosar
In her relatable and fun talk, Adviti Mishra engages the audience by transporting them to her school days when she was categorised as a ‘nerd’ by her peers. However, she wanted to break out of this stereotype that she was constricted to by proving to the world that she wasn’t just a nerd but rather a multi faceted person. Therefore, she impulsively decided to train to be an athlete, something very unexpected for a ‘nerd’. Through her journey as an athlete she realised that the challenge she had been trying to rise up to wasn’t the challenge posed by others, but rather one she had created for herself: believing that other’s opinions of her dictated the type of person she was.
In grade 12 at The Cathedral and John Connon School in Mumbai, Adviti Mishra is a true leader with numerous accomplishments and leadership positions under her belt. From spearheading initiatives including ForHisStories and ForHerStories that positively impact the society to becoming president of the Interact Club and co-head of the database team at CAJCS, Adviti has shown her passion for leadership and innovation. While her interests span from robotics to playing the guitar, she is also a beginner long- distance runner who has organised various fundraisers and taught schoolchildren to create a positive change in our society. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
