Ameer Akram, a junior student majoring in computer science at Nile University, has taken the initiative to establish TEDxNileUniversity. Driven by his deep admiration for TED Talks, Ameer recognized the absence of a TEDx community at his university and decided to fill that void. TEDxNileUniversity is dedicated to the dissemination of valuable ideas through meticulously curated TED Talk events, with the ultimate goal of educating and enlightening global audiences in an accessible manner.
Ameer's unwavering commitment to fostering intellectual engagement and promoting the sharing of innovative research is exemplified by the success of TEDxNileUniversity, including their highly acclaimed event held on October 15, 2022.
As Ameer continues his academic journey in computer science, his passion for TEDx and his dedication to the growth and impact of TEDxNileUniversity remain unwavering.
TED events offer a wide range of content spanning science, business, arts, technology, and global issues. Main stage sessions are thematically curated and feature TED Talks, music, performances, and comedy. Attendees also engage with TED Fellows, participate in workshops and activities called Discovery Sessions, explore exhibits and activations, and enjoy curated dinners.
TEDWomen specifically highlights women's voices and contributions. These events inspire groundbreaking ideas, multidisciplinary collaboration, and positive global impact. It’s a three-day conference about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers. The program of speakers, workshops, afternoon and evening events — and daring discussions — has sparked some of TED's most iconic moments yet.
The TED Talk event, themed "Fearless: To the Next Level," proved to be a resounding success. After an extensive search, nearly 50 speakers were carefully selected based on their alignment with the event's theme. The distinguished lineup included Abeer El-Leithy, Karim Amr, Mireille Barsoum, Mohamed Abdelfattah, Nada Chatila, and Shrouk Ghallab. While primarily targeting Nile University students, the event also welcomed attendees from other universities.
The success of the event was further bolstered by the support of various sponsors, including NilePreneurs, STREAM, Stickerology, 180 degrees, Bookworm, Glamorize Glitter, Clue Digital, SYE, Smash Fit, By Hand, Red Bull, and She Clay. The talks delivered during the event are now available for streaming on ted.com and the official TEDx Talks YouTube channel.
