Speakers

Ulviyya Asgarzade

Ulviyya Asgarzade

Project manager

My name is Ulviyya and I am 25 years old. I am currently working as a project manager in a youth center in Azerbaijan. I started working as a volunteer in international projects in 2015. These projects have changed my whole life. I’ve been working with youngsters for over 5 years and I’ve found my way. This way took me to Sundsvall to volunteer for a year and left a mark in my life.

During my talk, I will share my experiences that I learned on my way. I started harvesting what I had planted a few years ago. Of course I failed sometimes, but knowing that I was doing my best is an important feeling for me. The main thing is not to be the best, but to do the best. Striving for perfection in everything we do can create a great deal of frustration in our life.

Experiences of colorism

My name is Sudhiksha Lingareddy. I am a 15-year-old, first generation, Asian-American and am currently studying as a high school student in Arizona, USA. I enjoy and am passionate about public speaking and writing about issues our world is capable of fixing. One day I hope to be able to reach a big audience to share my ideas. My interests in public speaking circle around ideas of motivation, social injustice, economic injustice, and spirituality.

In my Tedx Talk, I will be sharing my experiences of colorism, how to eradicate it, and self-motivate dark skin individuals.

David Asplund

David Asplund

Cultural Anthropologist

My name is David Asplund, and I recently graduate with a degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Riverside. For years, I have been working with a plethora of different projects ranging from tourism in national parks in the United States, presenter on public speaking events on topics such as youth democracy and equity, and how to improve communication within organisations. My current research interest is how transnational adoptees navigate identity formation.

However, for my TedxTalk I will be giving an informative speech on the Black Lives Matter movement using an anthropological perspective. I will be addressing an intersection of avenues, which aims to explain why, despite a global pandemic, people chose to protest even though large gatherings of people is highly discouraged. I would like to welcome each and everyone of you to partake in this.
