Hamza Siddiqui is an artist, aspiring entrepreneur, and full-time student at the University of the Pacific. With a passion for combating discrimination and misunderstanding through the arts, Siddiqui writes poetry that revolves around global problems and social issues.  He began writing and performing in 2009, and quickly rose to prominence by being selected as one of the winners at the All-City Poetry Slam.  He also served as the opening act for actor and author, Hill Harper, and was invited to perform at the national youth poetry festival, Brave New Voices.  Siddiqui also chooses to express his creativity through graphic design and web development.  He has over six years of design experience and recently opened his own web design and internet marketing firm based in the San Joaquin Valley. As a student, he stays involved as a Resident Assistant on campus and is currently the President of the Muslim Student Association.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
