Centennial College loves to show its students new perspectives and ideas, which makes the TEDx Public Speaking Series a great fit for the school. These ten-minute talks are a modern platform for idea and story sharing. Centennial College hosted its own TEDx Public Speaking series in October 2018, themed around the ideas and meaning behind “resilience.” We listened to talks from plenty of TEDx pros, but it wasn’t just their voices that were heard.

During TEDxCentennialCollegeToronto, two of our own students held talks. One was Erin Wilson, Recreation and Leisure student, parent and entrepreneur, who told the story of how she conquered adversity in her own life, and what she learned from it. The other was Shamim Ahmadi, who’d come to the college from Afghanistan to study nursing, and talked about her fight for education. Below, you can watch and listen to what these brilliant students had to say.
