Have you ever felt completely defined by your age?
I’m Lucy, I’m 22,
and I run the YouTube channel English With Lucy.
I teach English as a second language.
I have hundreds of thousands of students
all across the world,
but yet I still feel defined by my age.
I started teaching when I was 19,
and I was always really really secretive
about how old I was because I felt that the minute
I let anyone know that I was still a teenager,
I would suddenly lose their respect
and their trust and their confidence.
I really really think we need to start
celebrating young people and motivating them.
It shouldn’t have to be that your professional career
starts after 25, 26, 27.
It needs to start now.
Luckily, we have young people in the world
that want to change this.
A group of game-changers in Madrid, Spain,
have started a movement,
and part of that movement is Unleash.
Unleash is the most unconventional meeting of young talent
in the world, and I am elated to announce
that I am the official host for the 2017 event in Madrid.
Unleash is an event organised by Pangea.
Pangea is the first global platform that seeks
致力于联系 唤醒 鼓励年轻一代的全球性平台
to connect, awaken, and empower our young generation.
Age is absolutely not a barrier
when it comes to achieving our dreams.
Unleash is going to be an amazing three-day event
in the incredible European city of Madrid.
There will be 500 people attending,
100 different nationalities.
The show will be an incredible mix of speakers,
表演者 事务委员会 它将是
performances, panels, and it will just be
this unbelievable experience and atmosphere
of inspiration and amazement,
and all in the name of young talent.
– It all started two years ago,
when I realised I was feeling way less because of my age.
I realised that I was being considered less
because of being young,
and that my age was being a limitation.
We can never let anyone tell us
that we are not enough to do something,
that we’re not capable to do whatever we want to do.
What’s more important, that we’re not here to give our best.
– Last year they had speakers such as Asia Newton,
who, at 13, is the youngest CEO in America.
I’m the CEO and Cofounder.
We teach and train young people to make their own money.
或是Flynn McGarry 18岁
Or Flynn McGarry, who at 18 was named
the most influential young chef by Time Magazine.
This year we’ve got loads and loads
of amazing inspirational young speakers,
像Hadia Ghaleb 时装引领者
like Hadia Ghaleb, the fashion influencer.
We’ve got a 22-year-old science prodigy
featured on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Technology.
We’ve got a secret speaker who is a human-rights activist
making a huge impact on the world.
There are going to be performances
in between the speaking events.
歌手 舞者 杂技演员 魔术师 算命家
Got singers, dancers, acrobats, magicians, mentalists.
It’s going to be a real show of talent.
There’ll be lots of panels with speakers, organisations,
startups, where you can debate and you can interact.
There’s going to be an amazing networking opportunity.
There’s The Festival, which is the food and networking area.
You can enjoy great food,
the format and taste of which will be extremely exciting.
Huge companies and sponsors will have interactive stands,
and you can really interact with them,
and make yourself known.
They’re all companies that really support
and encourage young talent and ambition.
There will also be a bucket list for you to complete,
which will be a mixture of simple and challenging tasks;
and if you complete them all,
then you get a really exciting prize.
Another really really exciting element of the event
will be the Pangea Awards Ceremony,
which aim to be like the Nobel Prizes of youth.
These celebrate and acknowledge
the achievements of under-25s.
It’s basically a huge celebration
of what our generation can achieve.
This isn’t going to be a small event.
We have got massive sponsors.
比如 Lidl Telepizza Fundacion Ragael Del Pino
We’ve got Lidl, Telepizza, Fundacion Rafael Del Pino,
Accenture, and many many others
which we will be announcing shortly.
