TEDx speaker

Westerford High Grade 8 pupil Talah James was one of eight youth speakers at TEDx Cape Town at Ratanga Junction on October 16. Talah, a former Bay Primary pupil who lives in Capri, spoke about “Social media cup – half full or half empty?” Talah said the point was to get parents and children on the same level of understanding with social media, explaining to children why their parents were constantly worried about it, as well as explaining to parents what teenagers see and do on social media. “In the end, conflict should be prevented because of the clear communication,” said Talah.
