Alexis, 17, is a senior at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta. Her interest in math and science, robotics, and biological research led to the founding of Team Connect – a literacy program in partnership with Refugee Family Services (RFS) in Stone Mountain Georgia, targeted towards refugee middle school children who are behind in their reading comprehension, math, and science skills, all of which, she believes, are necessary to becoming a holistic learner. Through her work with RFS for three years, she has been able to meet many people, and inspire other young children to become interested in furthering their academic career.

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, TEDTalks 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)
