The story of how I grew up, how I learned, and how the people I met changed my way of looking at failure and education. Education should allow students to fail and then find their own paths. Failing and restarting make them stronger and sure of what they really want. What is your understanding of failure? Huiying (Amy) Ni is excited to be a part of TEDxYouth@NBPS this year. As a passionate speaker and future educator, she loves sharing her ideas and her understanding of education. Amy would like to thank her family for their love and support, and always being her best audience. She would like to thank her TEDx coach Ms. Marge Dougherty and Mr. August Berger for helping her and giving her advice. She would like to thank Ms. Anastasia Hall for always being her mentor, inspiring her, and helping her to explore her new possibilities! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
