Dixie Sakti Waigel Vinueza
Dixie Waigel is Swiss-Ecuadorian senior with passions for activism, computer science, and language-learning. Having worked as the webdesigner for the last TEDxYouth@ISP, she was inspired by the talks that took place and dreamed of doing her own one day. Having participated in the fight for equality for several issues, especially in regards to gender and the LGBT+ community, she hopes to convey some of the impacts that closed-mindedness in our societies creates. Not only will she use anecdotes from her own life, such as co-founding her school’s Gay-Straight Alliance, but retell the experiences of those around her whose voices have yet to be heard.
