Description

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. At 9 years old, Julia Wolfe is a veteran of Burning Man--yes, that Burning Man--as well as the youngest TEDxABQ speaker to date! Her experience in the Nevada desert transformed and inspired her. Julia talks about what she has learned from the infamous festival, including her favorite Burning Man principle: Everyone must participate, NO spectators! Since Julia could speak, she has enjoyed presenting ideas to an audience. When she was eight years old, she attended Burning Man with her father. Her experience transformed and inspired her and continues to inform the way she lives. Since Julia could say “KUNM,” she has contributed to the live weekly Albuquerque-based public radio show, the Children’s Hour. Her spontaneity and intelligence always delights listeners. She is an elementary student at Escuela Del Sol Montessori. She has traveled to Mexico, France, England, and Russia, which has given her a broad appreciation of the world beyond Albuquerque. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
