Students are empowered to make decisions every day that affect their scholastic and personal lives. Too often, the power we hold to positively affect our futures and day to day lives are suppressed by a myriad of pressures. As students Jade and Arianna strive to find moments of happiness and participate in activities that bring us joy and satisfaction. This endeavour that happiness is made and not found is a driving force and theme of their TEDx talk.

Jade Vidal and Adrianne Zelada are students at Austin O’Brien High School. Jade is a passionate and active member of the Model United Nations debate team. She is a flutist for the Concert Ensemble, a photographer/editor for the Yearbook Team and a competitive member of her school’s Soccer and Badminton teams. Adriana Zelada loves acting, singing and dancing, as well as public speaking. She finds public speaking truly fascinating and its power to create change in the world is like nothing else. Through public speaking, she hopes to bring positivity to the lives of all those around her.
