What motivates us to solve problems?

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are all having a great summer! Kedar was invited to be a Key Note Speaker at the Paradigm Challenge Award Ceremony in LA and enjoyed meeting some wonderful young problem solvers who are making a difference with their ideas, inventions and efforts!

According to their founder & CEO, Jeff Richardson, the Paradigm Challenge invites students aged 4-18 around the world to use kindness, creativity and collaboration to help solve real-life problems. 

Kedar was a winner for his age category last year, and was very excited to be invited again to LA to be part of the award ceremony!  He enjoyed his first experience of being a 'discussion moderator' for the winners, that evening.
