TEDxSoleburySchool 2016: Keren Zhang

The Power From Within

Keren is a senior at Solebury School. She grew up in Changzhou, China, before coming to Solebury. During her Teach2Serve program, Keren found her interest in social entrepreneurship and looked forward to bringing good changes to her community. Through the program, she worked with her student teammates to change our school into a water-bottle-free campus. Keren spent her 2015 summer internship at Tiny Toones, a non-profit organization in Cambodia. This organization, which teaches at-risk kids self-confidence and nonviolence through breakdance, inspired Keren. This year, she organized a breakdance workshop and competition at Solebury School to spread the idea of breakdance as a creative, nonviolent way of helping at-risk kids to express themselves.
