Confidence in Yourself | Alexandra Calmeira | TEDxStMaryCSSchool


We must learn that the only opinion about ourselves that matter is our own. No matter how weird or quirky we are, we are who we are meant to be, and we must accept that. Enjoy this compelling talk from Alexandra Calmeira from the St. Mary TED-Ed club. Alexandra Alexis Calmeira was born March 31, 2003. Allie (her preferred nickname) is 16 years old and has an older brother who is a non-commissioned naval warfare officer who is finishing his second year at the Royal Military College of Canada. Right now, Allie is enjoying being an “only child”, if you don’t count her 5-year-old English bulldog and 1-year old bunny. She attended St. Elizabeth Seton elementary school and graduated with honors and received the art and French awards. Allie is now in grade 10 and goes to St. Mary Catholic S.S. where she is surrounded by her loyal and quirky friends. She loves science and physical education; keeping both her mind and body in tip-top condition. Outside of school Allie trains as a kickboxer and is working towards competing in matches. After high school Allie wants to pursue a degree in Forensic Anthropology so she can advocate for victims who can no longer advocate for themselves. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
