ChangeYourEnergy.com joined The Secret of Mago Castle
author Rebecca Tinkle last Saturday, April 17th at TEDxYouth@Glendale
, a one-day event for teens and young adults focused on empowering them to dream big and work hard to make their dreams come true.
Over 300 people gathered at the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, AZ where authors, educators, musicians, and more spoke on the theme, Word In Mind. The 12 speakers were supplemented by two TED Talk videos and performances by pianist and music teacher Josh Stefanski and teen dance troupe ElectroBotz.
They were followed by a special workshop given by the Earth Citizens Organization (ECO), which taught a Tai Chi form as a way to maintain harmony and balance as an Earth Citizen.
ECO PR Manager Paul Yanson also opened the event with the first talk, telling the teens “What Makes a Super Hero.”
In addition to signing books during the lunch break and after the second session, Rebecca Tinkle gave a talk about her road to becoming an author and what she overcame in herself to do it. Titled, “I Dreamt Out My Work,” Rebecca’s heartfelt delivery added a soft strength to the program.
