Our Unhealthy and Deceptive Obsession with Perfection | Zainab Attarwala | TEDxMoreauCatholicHS

What is perfection? In this influential talk, Zainab addresses the deceptive content social media imprints on society which distorts our perspective on perfection and reality. She explores various aspects of social media such as the use of photo editing apps and misleading celebrity endorsed products. Her personal struggles have inspired Zainab to share the negative effects this can have on adolescents mental health in a growing digital world.

Zainab is a graduating high school student who, along with her passions in studio art and athletics, actively volunteers at her local food bank and hospital to help strengthen her community. She has extended her service to volunteering for children in impoverished areas in India where there is a lack of proper medical care and nutrition. To help counter this issue, she plans on studying Nutritional Science in college to pursue a career as a Pediatrician. She hopes to take that knowledge and help children who need medical assistance around the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
