TEDxYouth @ Shen Wai International School

TEDXYouth@SWIS is the first ever youth event to be organized by Shen Wai International School. TEDX is an initiative by TED to give platform to the ideas worth sharing. 

The theme of the First TEDX event at SWIS is "Glass Ceilings: Breaking Norms" and revolves around breaking the stereotypes and coming up with something valuable and inspiring. Some of our major ideas include the impact of popular culture on the food choices people make and its impact on ecosystem, robotics and gene technology, and lesser-known fields. 

There is also an emphasis on the importance of breaking language barriers to connect with the rest of the world and how it can benefit an enterprise and an individual. SWIS TEDx event has a equal number of female speakers to male as to spread the message that we live in a world of equality and there should be equal female representation. The theme also focuses on how one can inspire their-self to do something beyond the normal convention and make a rewarding and a satisfying career. 

This event is an effort to bring out the youth of Shenzhen city to a platform where changing times have got them out of their comfort zone and carved a niche for themselves with a clear objective and motivation."

Sitong Sheng 盛司潼

Sitong Sheng is the brain behind the HYK gene sequencing company. HYK Gene was officially established in Shenzhen in 2008 but the R&D began before, while he was doing research at his own laboratory in Charlottesville, Virginia. Sheng already had an idea to start a company and commercialize the technology but didn't know if it was better to do it in the US or in China. Encouragement of the then-Minister of Health of China, Minister Chen Zhu, helped Sheng to take his novel technology to China to establish a truly Chinese innovative gene sequencing company – with its own independent intellectual property rights and patents. Sheng was therefore invited back as one of the first batch of China’s ‘Thousand Talents Plan’. HYK Gene is a product company. While China is now a global giant in the field of genome sequencing, the vast majorities of players here do not have their own products but rather, act as users or distributors for foreign products.
