How can teens break through the everyday default of apathy? Gwendolyn Rewoldt offers three life-changing solutions. «Listen. Are you breathing just a little and calling it life?»

Gwendolyn is a big fan of poetry and literature and fascinated by the human experience. She dreams of traveling, meeting all kinds of people, and learning as much as she can about the world we live in. Whether it’s science or math, art or music, or even juggling if she wants to try it. At the end of the day, she believes life is what you make it. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
