In "FindingCertainty in the Unknown," 15-year-old Sabina explores why we must stop attempting to 'plan' the futures amidst the unpredictability of the world. Drawing on film, literature, and personal anecdotes, her talk encompasses how we can use both fiction and reality to navigate the lives and come to the realization that everything we fear has, in one way or another, been lived through already.
TEDxYouth@DAA 2022 marks the 10th year of TEDxYouth at Dubai American Academy.

Panicker is a high school student at Dubai American Academy. In her talk, she tells her experience of how we can look to the humanities to aid with navigating the lives through the unknown.
