In our world today, the ‘mask’ has become a symbol of resilience and solidarity in face of adversity, against the unknown and uncertain. Yet we’ve been wearing one long before the pandemic. Our theme focuses on the metaphor of the mask as an envelope while aiming to uncover what lies beneath false pretences, flawed information and concealed emotions. Is all as it seems or are we deceived by what’s on the surface? Don’t we all carry masks daily, obscuring our true selves and sentiments, covering up to please others or to hide the despair within. At TEDXYouth@JNIS we seek to pursue the unfiltered truth behind the masks of deception.

Note from the license holder
The times we are living in are life changing and have created a wedge between humans. It is now more important than ever to inspire. Inspire change, inspire the extraordinary and inspire meaning. Through this event, we hope to spread brightness in the dark.
As TEDxYouth@JNIS 2022 comes together, we look forward to amplifying the stories and creative ideas of our local speakers. We want to showcase the ways in which the mask acts as an envelope To uncover what is hidden under false pretences and information.
I would like to give a big shout out to our incredible organising committee of TEDxYouth@JNIS2022 team who have worked tirelessly to make this event memorable for you all. Our teachers, supervisors at JNIS and the organising committee without whose support none of this would be possible.
