A TEDx event was organized by a high school student at Harbin No. 3 High School on Aug. 21. With the theme of “blooming,” the event received warm responses from the students.

Jiang Zhuowen, the organizer of the activity, invited intelligent transportation expert Wang Yinhai, Australian psychologist Shen Yi, and U.S. film director Chen Jianying to deliver speeches.

Harbin No. 3 High School is the only high school in northeast China that is qualified to host TEDx events.

It was the third TEDx program held by the school. Thanks to Jiang’s personal achievements and his public welfare contributions, reputable speakers have been invited to the school.

In addition to a series of titles, such as president of school debate society, provincial champion of a national high school debate tour, and first-prize winner in a national high school physics competition, Jiang is also an enthusiastic volunteer teacher.

He founded an association for volunteer teaching at his school, and 200 students participated. They have conducted both online and offline activities, helping a total of nearly 10,000 students from local middle schools. It is inspiring that some of the students have entered top high schools under their assistance.

Jiang’s experience has earned him a chance to apply for a TEDx license. Because of his extraordinary performance, he has won the hearts of interviewers and has been qualified.

On Aug. 21, the three famous speakers made excellent speeches to the students with the theme of “blooming,” covering a wide range of topics, including self-adjustment, life choices, and future lifestyles.

“This event was the brainstorm of the three speakers, and also exactly what I think of when I think of ‘blooming,’” he said.

“I want to be a promoter of cultures who introduces new ideas to people, and brings knowledge and information through activities, such as volunteering and TEDx,” Jiang noted, adding that he will continue this path in the future.
