Cameron was born in Australia, raised in Germany and England and has an English mother and a German father. Through traveling the globe and having a social worker as a mother, he's found that there are a lot of people, in particular children, who are deprived of many of the most basic wants. Through that he has come to a conclusion. Poverty is everywhere we just don't see it. This is most noticeable at a traditionally happy time, such as the Christmas holidays, a time which Cameron nds isn't as happy as it may seem. Through his research, Cameron has found that there are many children in and around Bonn, where he currently lives, that cant afford to share the German tradition of getting Christmas presents, and for the last three years he has been trying to help rectify that.

he Speaker Lineup

Hannah is an 11 year old girl who has been inspired to learn more about Global poverty. She discusses our materialistic greed and how we take our things for granted and throw things in the trash when theyre totally yesterday. Hannah discusses alternatives for our stuff in her action to help others who may be less fortunate. Kate Schlichte is a grade 5 student, who loves to sing. Singing inspires her in every walk of life - in how she thinks and how she acts. When she travelled to Abu Dhabi, she realized how women and men held different statuses from each other in society. To make a difference, she created a song to make you aware of what equality looks like for men and women. She chose this topic, because she understood that she has the right to speak out. One evening, Shivani Rajhansa learned about the Gujrat Riot, which was a riot between religions in India. As she became more aware of the conict, a desire grew inside to make a change. Shivani longs for peace on earth, and will be talking about how kids are the key to a peaceful future. Divya is a 11 year old girl who loves to hear stories about her family. She was surprised when her grandma told her that many women are not so privileged to receive an education or get a job. Divya decided that teaching young females to be condent and to believe that they can do anything is a step towards gender equality.

Alejandro was born in Germany, but grew up in a Spanish family. Roughly 4 years ago, when he lived in America, he experienced being bullied. He decided that students need support and strategies to overcome this conict and decided he was the one to help!

Monica is a young girl who understands that she has many rights as a female, that others do not share across the world. She wishes to educate others about gender discrimination, and what we, as a global community, can do about exclusion. Monica will read her childrens book entitled The Right to Vote, which has simple vocabulary, but sends out a big message for kids and adults. Our humanity depends on you to make a difference.

Wagma is an Afghan American, born in Omaha, Nebraska. She has spent the last 11 years of her life living in America, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal and now in Germany. Through her talk, she will share how she has learned about the importance of Education through her familys challenges in life.

Valeria is interested in technology and has learned about the importance of being a safe digital citizen. She wants people to be aware of internet safety issues, so kids can network in a safe environment. Her talk focuses on Social safety in the cyber world. She is currently teaching kids about these issues using an iBook and a website that she created.

Vincent Grebe is a native German. He is privileged to be a student at the International School in Bonn. The international community has inspired him to consider alternate educational systems and he feels that Germany can learn from other countries. Vincent discusses his ideas to improve the public education system in Germany.

VIDEO At age 9, while traveling with his family and being "roadschooled," Birke Baehr began studying sustainable and organic farming practices such as composting, vermiculture, canning and food preservation. Soon he discovered his other passion: educating others -- especially his peers -- about the destructiveness of the industrialized food system, and the alternatives.

VIDEO TED-Ed allows users to take any useful educational video, not just TED's, and easily create a customized lesson around the video. Users can distribute the lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on the world, a class, or an individual student.

Kaitlyn is interested in the topic of bullying and conict resolution skills. She has explored different programs that address bullying and conict resolution using peer support. She will talk about a program she is helping establish in her community.

Pierre is a student at the International School of Bonn. He grew up in France until his family moved to Bonn in 2006. He is passionate of sports and to spend some of his free time with friends, playing the saxophone or reading. This year is the rst time that he is participating in TEDxYouth@BIS event and he appreciates the fact that people are able to share their ideas around the world. His talk is about bees and their importance in our environment. He has an interest in bees and the role that they play in biodiversity. Nana Bruce-Amanquah is an eighth grade student from Ghana. In 2009 she moved to Germany after living in Africa her entire life. One of the rst things she noticed when she got to Bonn was how clean the city was compared to her hometown. However lately she has noticed that the cleanliness of her school's environment isn't as great as it could be. In her talk, she will be trying to convince students at her school to pitch in to keeping their school clean. When she grows up, she wants to have a job that has enough authority to enable her to change the waste systems in Ghana, but until then she thinks this TEDx event is the best way to start developing her ideas one step at a time. Laura enjoys sports and nature, and through her interests, began to notice how children behaved in the environment around her. Slowly, she began realizing that the playground didn't give the rosy picture it should have. She wanted to make a change. She hopes that her talk will open your eyes to the real playground world and to solutions to help solve these problems.

Rahnya admits that her biggest interest is probably thinking...about things from popsicles to Roman metals. Ironically enough, one day, after trying to think of a good thing that would take her the rest of the day to think about, she stumbled across the complicated world of human physiology. In her personal inquiry into this field, she began to search using the keyword stereotypes. She soon discovered this world-wide dilemma and decided to share solutions on how to improve the situation. Lusa was born and raised in Portugal. Her world is her culture and when she moved to Germany at the age of 15, she had to face new challenges as her life was turned upside down. English was not her rst language and she had to adapt and learn a lot. Through these experiences she realized the importance of observation and to understand deeply new environments and different people around her. Understanding the importance of preserving her own identity in the midst of change, she realized that her identity also brought new ideas and inuenced the environment and the people around her. She is positive and sure that a good change needs to be continuous and that anyone who is willing to trust themselves for their own good and for the good of others can make it happen.

SPECIAL GUEST Tudor Tarlev has a dream to travel all around the world, work with TEDx organizers, connect on personal levels and share network resources to help local communities in making a positive impact and change things for better. He envisions this as a life opportunity to make peoples dreams real.

Dhillon Welsh is a 14-year old student attending Bonn International School. Dhillon is interested in talking about an extra-curricular group that he created and how it will continue if he leaves. When Dhillon joined BIS, he was interested in joining the schools Blues Band. Unfortunately, there werent any spots available. So, he spearheaded the effort to create an alternative to the Blues Band, mostly consisting on Middle Schoolers rather than High Schoolers and open to all. Dhillon will speak with you today about how he has sustained this extra-curricular activity throughout Middle School and how he will help sustain it as he moves on to High School. VIDEO At 18, Natalie Warnes work with the Invisible Children movement made her a hero for young activists. At TEDxTeen she uses her inspiring story to remind us that no one is too young to change the world.
