 Adora Svitak Biography

Adora began delivering writing workshops at local schools after publishing a collection of short stories. Later, she began advocating for students' voices at education conferences.

In 2010, she delivered the speech “What Adults Can Learn from Kids” at TED. The speech has received more than 5 million views on TED.com alone and been translated into more than 40 different languages. Her passion for amplifying the voices of youth led her to organize a team of students to produce a TEDx event for youth, TEDxRedmond.

Pacific Standard Magazine called Adora one of the "30 Top Thinkers Under 30" and "an activist for feminism, liberal politics, and youth-oriented causes [...] pretty far up the road to becoming intellectual royalty."

In 2018, she graduated with a major in Development Studies and minors in South Asian Studies and Creative Writing from UC Berkeley.

She currently works at a nonprofit in San Francisco focused on child welfare.

  • Millennials in the Global Economy

    Think of "young people in the 21st century" and what comes to mind?

In this thought-provoking presentation, Adora Svitak powerfully demonstrates that young people transcend this dichotomy time and time again when they're given the chance to be represented and empowered. Providing examples of peers who are changing the global story, she emphasizes the necessity of youth voice from the classroom to the boardroom, and explains that the innovative spirit of young people may be our most precious natural resource.
