Limited life, Unlimited Stories | Ms. Harmeet Kaur Dawar | TEDx

Posted December 11, 2020 from India

In my last Tedx talk, I talked about ‘Limited life, Unlimited stories’. I explained how it is important to follow and document the life and true incidents happening in one’s life. I insisted that one’s future milestones can define one’s life. I reiterated that we shouldn’t make our perceptions according to social​ norms and patriarchal traditions.

I am the founder of The Pink Foundation, a non-government organization that actively works for underprivileged women and children making them self sustainable and intellectually independent in two states of India. A graduate in Mass Media with a Masters degree in Development Communications. I have worked in the NGO sector with many organizations. I am associated with the Swedish Institute as a Young Leader-Fellow at Young Connectors of Future Programme and Global Shaper with World Economic Forum. I am also on the Mentor Board of The Gujarat University Startup & Entrepreneurship Council (GUSEC).

 

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Hey Jill. Things are fine here. COVID is impacting a lot of lives and small organizations like ours.
Yes, I thought to make use of the World Pulse platform for a greater reach.

Hello Harmeet,
Congratulations on your TEDx talk and the valuable lessons on curating life as we go, lest we forget, forget where we've been, what defines us and therefore where we ought to be, or fail to heal by burying too much inside. Well done for the work that your foundation is doing to bring about change!

Thank you so much Tamarack for your kind words. Casteism and Gender Equality are deeply engraved in our patriarchal society and I am doing my bit to fight this. Please share this on your platforms for a greater reach.
