TedxMSJC – Friday, October 22nd

Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) will host its annual TEDxMSJC event organized by students, faculty and staff on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021 at 4:00 pm online via YouTube.


MSJC’s TEDx program will feature seven speakers of varying backgrounds for this year’s event: “Resilience.” The theme aims to highlight ideas and initiatives that aid the community in persevering during challenging times.


“More than a year after the COVID-19 pandemic started – and as the stay-at-home order begins to lift and people slowly step back into the world – we’ve heard about how they got through the COVID pandemic,” said Bianca Swan Finch, Chair of the Department of Theatre for Mt. San Jacinto College, who is a lead organizer of the event. “Therefore, we have focused this year’s theme on these stories within our community. Through the trials of 2020, our community truly showed remarkable resilience.”


Scheduled speakers include:


• Brandon Christopher Allen, Motivational Speaker – “When Thunder Speaks”
• Angelica M. Anderson, Honors Enrichment Program Administrative Associate
• Julie Falen, KCAA Radio Host – Julie Talks Money
• Dr. Katherine Kiefer-Newman, San Bernardino Valley College Faculty
• Von Lawson, Mt. San Jacinto College Dean of Career Education
• Dr. Lillian Yvette Melendrez, Idyllwild Arts Academy
• Stephanie Otero, CPA, President and CEO of Feeding America Riverside and San Bernardino Counties
