This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Justin Harris presents The Visionary Box — a simple tool used to help teens launch their dreams, do the impossible, and inspire others.
An entrepreneur since the age of eight, Justin Harris dreamed of being at the forefront of an educational revolution led by teens. Currently living in Durham, North Carolina, Justin works on EnvisionWith.Me — an online network of resources for aspiring teenage visionaries looking to make positive changes in the world. As a senior in high school, Justin enjoys wrestling, designing websites, editing videos, supporting human rights, and is the author of Defying the Stats by Defining Visionary Life. Incredibly networked with young visionaries active in communities around the world on EnvisionWith.Me, YouTube, and Twitter, he has dedicated his life to building an army of teenage visionaries committed to tackling obstacles that seem impossible. Harris has spoken at The National BDPA Conference, North Carolina State Chief Information Officer Conference, many high schools, and other venues.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
