Esther van Duin represented Dutch Youth at UNESCO and is our first speaker

On Monday the 20th of June we held our Audition Event. The Audition Event was a great success and we enjoyed 13 auditions with varying topics. It took a while for the core team of TEDxEde 2016 to make their decision. However, we are proud to announce that Esther van Duin has earned an exclusive spot as first speaker of TEDxEde 2016 in October! Her talk about mental health and her personal transformation is certainly one which will touch people’s hearts.
