Hélène De Rudder

Hélène De Rudder is the youngest speaker of this year's line-up. Despite being only 11 years old, she's not your ordinary schoolgirl. Like most girls her age, Hélène starts to like beauty care, fashion (and a little bit of attention of the boys as well), but she also loves art, jiu jitsu, rollerskating, drawing and her cat Tilly.

In her TED talk, Hélène will talk about an essay she wrote. For school, she had to make a presentation about her summer holiday. Because she didn't go on a holiday that year, Hélène decided to go on an imaginary trip to a happy, sunny paradise. Now, the TEDx audience is formally invited to join her on this lovely trip.
