Celebrating the Art of Public Speaking: TEDxAmericanSchoolDhahran

TEDxAmericanSchoolDhahran, an inspiring IB CAS project led by two students, has evolved into a vibrant event that brought together parents, ASD staff and, most importantly, students to celebrate the art of public speaking. The event was a testament to the power of ideas and the impact of effective communication.

We were honored to host our esteemed guest speaker, Dr. Firas Salaas, CEO of Cham Dental & Derma. Dr. Salaas shared a special and heartfelt story that resonated deeply with the audience, setting a powerful tone for the event.

Our master of ceremonies, a senior ASD student, expertly introduced the lineup of speakers, who ranged from 10th to 12th grade. These talented students delivered powerful, moving and inspiring speeches on a variety of meaningful and relevant topics. Each speech highlighted the depth of thought and passion our students bring to the stage, making the event a memorable experience for all attendees.

The success of TEDxAmericanSchoolDhahran would not have been possible without the dedicated organizing team and the support of our beloved sponsor, Alichia Gerber. We extend our greatest thanks to her for her constant support and invaluable contributions to the event.

TEDxAmericanSchoolDhahran has become a significant event in our school calendar, showcasing the talents and ideas of our students and fostering a community that values the art of public speaking. We look forward to many more events that continue to inspire and connect our community.

Thank you to everyone who participated and supported this event. Together, we are celebrating the power of ideas and the art of public speaking at ASD.
