Teens, Tech, and the Antidote. Why an antidote? Technology has become integrated into our daily lives, leading to positive and negative consequences. 15-year old Ilana Nguyen, a professional teenager, presents a funny and poignant talk that challenges all of humanity to be the solution to the negative consequences of technology.
Ilana is passionate about inspiring people to use and build technology in a way that benefits humanity. Ilana is the San Mateo Chapter Founder for the EduSTEM Initiative, a youth-led initiative that works to empower youths of underrepresented backgrounds to pursue STEM. She has partnered with the Peninsula YMCA and the San Mateo Public Library to hold three semesters of free STEM workshops and counting. She is also a 10th grader at Stanford Online High School. Ilana cares deeply about the problems surrounding growing up in today's age. She advocates for equal opportunities for youth and is a part of her school's efforts to promote social inclusivity in an online setting. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
