TEDxYouth@Berlin "The Spark" - Julinka Waesche
Having just started the IB Diploma Program at the BBS, Julinka Waesche is rolling with the stress, excitement and opportunity that the last two years of school tend to bring about. Like many students her age, she has no idea where she will be in 2 years time. However, she knows that her passion lies with English and Biology. Outside the classroom she runs - a lot - but when she's not running she'll probably be found playing the guitar or debating. She is really excited to be part of TEDxYouth@Berlin and is looking forward to seeing you at the event at Humboldt Viadrina School of Government soon!
TEDxYouth@Berlin "The Spark" - Christian Rogers
Christian grew up in a small village on the North Devon coast, above the cliffs looking out to the sea, the sound of which has never left his ears.
Christian began performing in Wales as a street performer in 1986. Disillusioned with the political state of Britain at that time he left to travel, alone, through Europe. Living only from what he earned on the streets as a clown and a juggler he made his way to each corner of Europe as it was then. He met travellers, vagabonds and crazy people from all around the world. He discovered and absorbed much from the cultures he encountered in an attempt to shake off the island mentality that he had grown up with. Driven by curiosity and an overwhelming desire to look round the next corner he was able to open his mind to learn about other people and places.
So too did he learn the importance of tradition, culture and, especially, language as a means to identity. He discovered how entertaining and effective a simple tale, well told, could be. As a traveller, bound to travelling lightly, he had found the perfect material for his performances. Performing a mixture of tales and anecdotes mixed with juggling and physical comedy Christian created a self contained entertainment. Since leaving Britain he has never done anything else than perform.
Now, after more than 25 years, he has gathered stories from the places where he has lived and turned his talents to their telling.

TEDxYouth@Berlin "The Spark" - Elias Miguel Nader & Jasper Akkermans
Jasper and Elías have been making movies since they taught themselves how to handle a camera when they were 9 years old. Steadily they became more comfortable with moviemaking, and got help from Youtube channels to learn more about editing and special effects. Where Elías stands behind the camera, gives directions and edits, Jasper and their friends think up stories and act. Throughout their years of moviemaking they have worked their way through 3 cameras, gradually learning more about how to handle them. Starting off with iMovie, Elías worked his way up to using professional Programs like Premiere Pro. They are currently editing a skiing video they recorded on their recent trip to the French Alps. Elías and Jasper greatly enjoy filmmaking and can only recommend it to other young people.
