Don’t Kill Them | Islam Elbeiti | TEDxYouth@TASOK

vor 2 Jahren

Islam Elbeiti did her talk in the form of a spoken word poem, where she inspired us all to follow the dreams we might think are unimportant. Before reciting her poem, she had asked every audience member to write down three goals or dreams in their life that they never pursued. She then collected the papers and read a few of them out loud at the end of her talk.

Islam Elbeiti is Sudanese and currently living in Kinshasa. She is passionate about poetry, music, and languages. She says "Growing up in different countries and cultures teaches you to fall in love with different things, in different ways, and I feel that music and poetry always filled the gaps." She says that being able to write poetry has exposed her to parts of herself that she doesn't think she could have experienced otherwise. She believes that writing teaches you to deal with your frustrations differently, using ink. Moreover, music makes her whole. One of her goals is to become the best female bass players in Sudan and to inspire more women in her country to become musicians.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
