In the year 2030, we're going to see more blended friendships that foster and promote diversity and inclusion. Olivia’s TEDx talk will prompt the conversation about making friends after high school while covering holistic healing, cultural elements, and other related factors to provide strategies for this vision.
Ngadjui is a second-year doctoral student in the ISU counselor education and counseling program. Her research interests include cultural inclusion efforts in education for K-12 and counselor education, crisis and trauma interventions, multicultural counseling and social justice. Among many roles, she highly values her role as an advocate whether in session, the classroom or in her daily life as she values being able to speak up to promote an equitable environment. Ngadjui is an avid reader, who currently hikes in the Idaho outdoors, frequently lifts at the gym, seeks out places to have tea, cares for four indoor plants and somehow finds time to keep tabs on her five godchildren (four girls and a boy) who are on the East Coast. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
