10-Years-Old girl Ishita Katyal TED Youth Conference -The Youngest Indian representative at TEDx
“She is very clear about what she wants. She didn’t hesitate for even a second. The whole trip was sponsored by TEDx. At the main event, when she stood on the stage to speak, I felt nervous because she was the youngest and had to speak without holding any paper in her hand. But she spoke well,” said Ishita’s mother, Nancy Katyal to The Indian Express.

How She Got Selected For TEDx Youth Conference In New York:-
There are lots of TEDx events nowadays happening in India. So far 600+ TEDx events have happened across India and 70,000+ talks have been produced. But yet fail to produce an exceptional talk who could be eligible for TEDx Talk in New York.
But above all, TEDx Bhilwara was the first one to find Ishita Katyal as the unsung hero. TEDx Bhilwara has made a tremendous effort to find this gem. They have provided her the platform to give a talk on 26th July 2015 in Bhilwara, Rajasthan.
The Talk got uploaded online in September, TEDx in New York liked the talk and so they contacted to invite Ishita to deliver the similar talk at TEDx Youth Conference in New York City on 14th November.
Before inviting Ishita Katyal, she had passed two online interviewed organized by TEDx member in New York.
TEDx Bhilwara had also played a key to uplift and spread the message of this young prodigy. But in most of the article, no one has mentioned TEDx Bhilwara, as they had also played an important role in helping Ishita to achieve the milestone.
According to Harsh Agarwal (Who is Licensee and Curator of TEDxBhilwara), who informed us(EverGalax) said ” The key role played by TEDxBhilwara to uplift and spread the message of this young prodigy hasn’t been mentioned. That is the correct process of reaching TEDYouth. Also, it is my pleasure to bring to your notice that, it is for the first time that a speaker from any TEDx event in India has been invited to give a Talk at main TEDx event “.
He also added,

When Ishita Katyal presented such a great topic “Why You Don’t Have To Wait Till You Grow Up”. This topic is something everyone should follow. Did You Know? Most of the time our Purpose of life lies in our childhood. Did You Know Why? Because in our childhood we only do that thing which we love to do. Just flashback your memory, and recover the happiest moments of your childhood. These moments should be the one which you felt proud and happy even though you hadn’t got anything in returns. I called it as the selfless task because you never expect anything in return. You keep on working for it as if you find happiness in it, the True Passion.
Just like Ishita Katyal. She wants to be an author. And she had also written a book called “Simran’s Diary”. This book is about her life, but she changed the name into Simran. In this book, she had written everything about children. The problem they face thinks they love to do and many interesting facts about Children. She believes only a child understand another child.
Also, her book is going to publish shortly. This thing can only happen when a child becomes decisive. And Independent thinking also plays an important role.
