Think about someone you consider to be a hero. To you they may seem to have superhuman abilities or a special quality that makes them special. But what if I said that you have the potential to be a hero? Quinn Shiraishi is a freshman at Kamehameha School, and in this talk, she will discuss how you do not need to have super powers to be a hero.

Three words that describe Quinn Shiraishi are athletic, hardworking, and geeky.  She currently attends Kamehameha Schools Maui. As a freshman, you can find her sitting with friends while studying, reading, and mostly talking. An avid athlete, Quinn swims, plays water polo, and does horseback riding. In her leisure time, she enjoys listening to music and reading. If Quinn could have one wish, she would like everyone to not judge others based on first impressions.

Recorded at TEDxYouth@SeaburyHall 2014, held on April 6, 2014 at the `A`ali`ikūhonua Creative Arts Center.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
