In my experience, teens generally prefer watching more “fun” TV shows over educational TED Talks in their free time. However, I’ve come across several entertaining and informative TED Talks every teen should watch, and which you’ll probably enjoy!
1. Looks Aren’t Everything. Believe Me, I’m a Model
Teens today have grown up with the very ugly believe that being pretty is all that matters. What’s worse is that you don’t even get to define what pretty is; Barbie has already set the standard for you! While teenage girls try to overcome the pressures of living up to impossibly high standards, they don’t always stop and think “Why?” Well, this TED Talk for teens given by Cameron Russel tackles that question in a way that will leave you thinking.
