TEDxCUNY 2023: Who We Are

Gerald W. Lynch Theater | March 10th, 2023

"Growth occurs not by changing who we are, but as we summon the courage to be who we are." ~ Katrina Kenison

In our daily lives, it can be easy to lose sight of one's individual identities and roles in the larger context of the shared world. Throughout our life’s journey, we are shaped by the people and experiences we encounter. Life is often understood through a series of labels, which have the power to both marginalize and uplift.


Ultimately, we have the agency to decide what defines us. Who we are is constantly evolving. Who we are is a culmination of our knowledge, choices and resiliency in the pursuit of unmasking our true selves.
