TEDxYouth@Eyüboğlu is a full day student-centered event organized by Eyüboğlu students, with a large audience of high school students. Our goal is to bring together bright-minded inquisitive students and adults to share their ideas in a vibrant and collaborative environment.

The idea behind our TEDxYouth Event

You are the artist of your own life. You have power over the decisions you make, just as an artist has over the creative process. This implies that life is subjective and susceptible to interpretation, just like art. Everybody's life is unique and can be viewed as an expression of their personal decisions. It entails setting objectives and making decisions with the aim of living a life that is satisfying and meaningful. Life is about the process of becoming one's true self, discovering who you are and shaping it accordingly. This year we have given our event the theme "Life is a work of art". People sometimes forget that they are the ones in control of their decisions and that their actions shape their future. Sometimes an artist’s art piece doesn’t turn out as they hoped, however, they learn to embrace it and continue with the art, even if they face difficulties, unexpected changes and make the wrong choices. As an artist you can always look at art from a new perspective and control how it shapes your future; in short you're the artist and your life the canvas!

"Life is a blank canvas and you are the artist"
