IDEAWORTH SPREADING:

Take a step in your life amidst your fear, whether it is learning a new language, fear of fulfilling something you always wanted to do but feared what others would think and will encourage you to let yourself go and do it.

 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Brigita is a Kaunas Technology University lecturer, PhD in Literature, foreign language teacher and founder of language school “Speak up”.

 

WE ASKED, THEY ANSWERED:

Who would be your Mr Wilson on a deserted island?

My Mr Wilson would definitely be my Japanese Akita, Aiko. Simply cause she is the most curious and loyal dog in the world. And keeps on pushing me do things, when I have no wish for that at all…
 
If you were recording one main message in a capsule for future generations, what would it be?

Never get too comfortable with yourself. Always leave some room for learning, for searching and doing something new. Challenge yourself, make that extra step, pinch yourself once in a while and get that rush of adrenaline again and again when doing something new! And pass that same message to the rest, just how good it feels to get out of that comfort zone!
 
Is your idea for TEDxKaunas 2019 an “SOS signal”, a “lucky charm”, a “reminder” or maybe something else?

I guess it is more of a reminder. A reminder that WE are the captains of our own lives and we can change its direction. Too often we get stuck in our fears and never dare and do what we secretly wish for. So yes, it is a reminder that nothing can ever be too late if you really want it. Just feel that freedom, go and do it.
