Jude Kadi 2019 TEDxSantaBarbara Speaker

In TEDxTalks by Christopher Foley


Our Teachers Deserve Better

Teachers should be more supported, protected, and their challenges need to be addressed in order for my generation to stand a chance of success.

Jude Kadi


I’m Jude Kadi and I’m 11 years old. I am an energetic person who loves to make new friends. I practice and play basketball in the Page Center League. I play the clarinet and I am also a member of the Ellwood school band and Santa Barbara Symphony. I practice swimming at Los Banos Del Mar. I’ve also been singing in the school talent show for the last 5 years. I have been voted by the students of my school to be in the student leadership program to represent the school, and just to make the school a better place. I have a mom and a dad that help me in everything and they always let me follow my dreams. In whatever I like to do, my parents are always there to support me. I also have a great sister that always makes me laugh and gives me tips in everything. I go to Ellwood Elementary school, and by the time I do the Tedx talk, I will be going to Goleta Valley Junior High. I am so excited to do this ted talk, and hope to meet lots of new people and in general have a fun time.
