Happy Thanksgiving Day to you and your loved ones. It doesn’t matter if this holiday is a part of your festive calendar, this holiday dedicated to gratitude, is a good reminder for us to reflect on the year, mull over things and give thanks to all the good in our life. It prompts us to pause, spare a thought to things we are most appreciative about and express our gratefulness.

With the pandemic restrictions still in play, many of us are not able to go back home and be with our loved ones.  But we know they are there for us and that is reason enough for cheer and optimism. No matter how hard the year has been, we are still able to find our blessings, our silver linings. Our event this year will do just that, it will reflect on this thought showcasing ideas that prompt us to be hopeful. 

Only a couple of weeks to go for the big day, we have hit the pause button for the moment to think about things we are most grateful for.

So, what is TEDxTinHauWomen thankful for this year? 

To begin with, our live in-person event. Unlike many of our counterparts across the world who are unable to host a live event, we are thankful that we can put together our face-to-face event this year.

Our team of volunteers who give us their precious time and talent, working tirelessly to put on a show that is truly exceptional. And that’s not all, this is a close-knit team that has each other’s back, empowering, encouraging, uplifting one and all.   

We are thankful to our speakers, who put their trust in us and allow us to help them prepare an engaging, impactful talk. Our sponsors, who believe in the power of ideas and support our event year on year. And our audience who mark their calendars for our inspiring talks.

And most importantly we are thankful to our families, our friends who are our backbone. They support us through and through, drive us to be the best we can be, love us unconditionally no matter what and recognize our passion for this community which is TEDxTinHauWomen. 

These are a few of the things we are thankful for. We hope you too are taking a pause to recognize things you are most grateful for in your life.
