  • Valeria Kechichian’s interview for TEDx Madrid 2016


    The lady behind Longboard Girls Crew Valeria Kechichian was the first longboarder to ever give a TEDx Talk last year during Madrid’s TEDx event organised by IE. The subject was Shaking up the Order and her Talk ‘We Ride The Shift‘ on society, women and why we do what we do here through LGC received amazing feedback from all around the world. This year she was invited by the organisation team to do an interview to use as a promotional video for this year’s TEDx event themed Why Not? We think it feats perfectly with our values.

    Check Valeria out explaining what the concept Why Not? means to her and how she believes fear holds us back from achieving our true potential, how society works following rules that someone else created for us and what we achieve when we break free from them.

  • India’s Skateboarder Atita Verghese’s TEDx Talk


    Atita Vergheses is India’s most prominent female skateboarder and organiser of Girl Skate India Tour, the first ever girl skate tour in India where 12 women from different countries of the world gathered to skate, build ramps and teach children in India how to skate. Awesome or what?

    She began skating at the age of 19, in Goa, and since then there has been no looking back. With about three and a half years of experience now, she is a professional skateboarder, and trains many of Bangalore’s budding skateboarders.
    In her early days as a skateboarder, being the only female skateboarder in a male dominated sport got Atita questioning herself at times about whether she could ever succeed.

    Atita was invited by TEDxPESITBSC India to give a TEDx Talk last March.

    “I still can’t help but feel the need to provide a more facilitating environment where women can feel validated and grow in a positive environment that they help create”

    Check her inspirational story out and get stoked.
