Our Speaker

Sarah Huo

Sarah Huo is an upcoming junior at Cherry Creek High School.

Sarah is very passionate about computer science, technology, and mathematics. She has been actively involved in multiple technology and computer science related extracurricular pursuits and has made amazing achievements

In 2022, Sarah won the President’s Education Award, a high honor for middle school graduates, awarding excellence in educational achievement. She is a 2024 NCWIT Aspirations in Computing High School Award Colorado Affiliate Winner, awarding excellence and dedication in computer science pursuits. She is also the 2023 State Runner Up in the Intro to Information Technology event in the Future Business Leaders of America Organization, qualifying to the National Conference.

However, despite all her experience with computer science and technology, it is her experience as a student that has allowed her to truly realize the true potential of technology when it comes to promoting productivity, especially for the everyday person. Throughout both middle and high school, she has had the opportunity to spend lots of time analyzing the optimization of such productivity through the combination of tools of technology and the discovery of several tricks and systems to allow for maximum productivity.

The rise of the digital age will no doubt come with challenges, as digitization means more demands to one’s flexibility, availability and efficiency as well as resulting in changes to the schedules and productivity routines of everyone and Sarah intends to use her experience in this matter to help guide others through such tumultuousness in this new era.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
