TEDTalk Tuesday: Rebecca Hwang’s “The Power of Diversity Within Yourself”

Rebecca Hwang discusses identity in her TEDTalk “The Power of Diversity Within Yourself.” Hwang uses her personal experience within living an international life to talk about the power embracing multiple identities. Rather than look to find commonalities with individual groups, she looks to bring different groups together through the different parts of her identity.

Hwang encourages everyone to be open to reinventing themselves — open to the possibility of change in one’s identity. Rather than find one’s “tribe,” we should focus on embracing the many parts of the self. This leads to an attitude of experimentation and invention in life.
