Krmvp Ted Ed Meeting 1- “Tell Us Who You Are?”
Report by HridyaAggarwal
The first meeting of the TED Ed Club KRMVP for the session 2019-’20 , conducted on 10th August 2019 was an enlightening one for many. We got to know a little more about ourselves and, also, our peers. The meeting was led by the TED Ed club leader RohanGoyal.
The meeting started with a friendly introduction of everyone, and everyone’s reasons for joining the club. Some of the students wanted to grow out of their shells of insecurity, and some to polish their interactive skills. The meeting proceeded with the members watching a TED talk, by the band “OK Go”, on how to find wonderful ideas. This led to a discussion on the question: “What is passion? And what makes your heart beat faster?” Every student had a different view on what passion is. One of the members stated, “Passion is something that defines you, something that drives you crazy…” another member stated, “Passion is something that gives you a sense of satisfaction!” We found many different opinions on what passion means and what it stands for.
Further, we were provided an idea journal, in which we undertook an activity on self-exploration, we were supposed to write (or draw) something that described us. Through this activity we got to know a little more about the other members of the club beside us. There were some artists and some adventurers, some foodies (candy lovers) and some fitness freaks, some introverts and some social bees, some messy and some clean, some confused and some clear-headed, but every single one was passionate about something, inquisitive, creative and open-minded. No two people are the same, they are unique in their own brilliant way and there is no better evidence of this fact than this amazing group of individuals.
Together we learned how to work at creating new and great ideas and that it’s okay to be weird and unique in our own way. The meeting ended with the club watching a talk by Harry Baker who shared various poems including “Paper People”. All in all, it was a great experience, and we surely cannot wait to be a part of something greater than us.
