These are just a few themes
teens give voice to at TEDxTeen.
TED is devoted to ideas worth spreading. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED's spin-off of local, self-organized events encouraged us to develop TEDxTeen.
TEDxTeen is an annual event in NYC that gives extraordinary teens a place and platform to share their work, tell their stories and inspire others. Bright young minds ask questions, air comments, and spark conversations that spread from one small stage to all corners of the worldwide web via TEDxTeen Talks.
Born and raised on the big island of Hawaii, Kuha'o Case is the oldest of three children. Incredibly, this 16-year-old prodigy started teaching himself how to play the piano and the organ four short years ago. Thanks to supportive fans, not only was he able to acquire his own piano this past year, but he also realized his dream of releasing his first album, Dare to Dream. As if all of this is not remarkable enough, Kuha'o Case is blind.
