Description

We all face challenges and we all have needs; however, it is the intensity of the need that varies amongst the individual. Faiz Moosa, an 11th grade student at Dubai American Academy, shares his own experience with understanding the meaning of 'special needs' and reminds us that everyone has a right to be accepted and valued for what they can do rather than what they can not do. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
