Discovering Understanding | Nicole Muñoz | TEDxSantaCatalinaSchool

Nicole Munoz shares her ideas about how to help others better understand themselves and the world, inspired by her exploration of the notion of identity during a virtual exchange with peers in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. Nicole Munoz, a student at Santa Catalina, is dedicated to fostering and promoting acceptance and understanding of each person’s identity, both at the local level and the global level. After taking part in a life-changing virtual exchange program with peers in the MENA region (the Middle East and North Africa), and pursuing a variety of virtual leadership experiences, Nicole has created a new organization Positive I, which aims to provide a space where youth can work together towards creating a world marked by understanding, respect, and acceptance. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
