Ariela is a current junior at the Illinois Math and Science Academy. She is heavily involved in IMSA campus activities, such as Eastern European Club, Gender Equality Now, Dance Team, Writing Center Tutor, and more. She is excited to see how TEDx’s event will come together and hear her fellow peers speak! Ariela is beyond excited for this opportunity to express her words and experiences to let others know they’re not alone. Without giving away any secrets, Ariela’s talk will focus on ballet and the stigma within dance. Throughout the writing process, she often searched for resources about girls speaking up against vulnerability and took the time to reflect on ending the silence. Her primary focus is on calling out what is lurking in the darkness to break the stigma. We cannot wait to hear Ariela’s TEDx Talk!
