Power of Reading from a Reluctant Teenager

By Alexia Safieh | TEDxActonAcademyGuatemala

What can reading do for us? It can do things that you wouldn’t ever imagine, changing your life for good. Discover the benefits of trying to read at least one book. "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go” - Dr. Seuss

Alexia Safieh is a writer, dancer, and reader. She discovered her love for reading two years ago when she had to read a book over school break. After reading for almost a year she discovered a new passion, writing. She attended Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan last year as a Creative Writing Major. She is currently working on her blog, and wants to enter writing competitions.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
