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)

Charu Sharma is an Indian explorer, writer, performer and entrepreneur. With 5 National Awards, she was enlisted as a "Power Woman" alongside such notables as Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Gandhi, Melinda Gates and Devita Saraf by Youth Incorporated magazine in March 2012. In 2003, Charu and brother Chinmay were awarded the National Bravery Award by the Prime Minister of India for fighting train robbers and saving lives of women. Charu went on to achieve black-belts in Karate and Taekwondo, represented India in Taekwondo in South Korea, and has been an advocate for self-defense training for women. At 21, she is currently studying Physics and Economics on a scholarship in Massachusetts at Mount Holyoke College, the first institution in the US where women could get college education. Charu has sailed twice with Semester at Sea, and her unexpected encounters with people and cultures around the world have inspired her to pen a travel memoir.
