Adora Svitak Profile

Since the age of four, Adora Svitak has been exploring what she can do with the written word: everything from championing literacy and youth voice to working with the UN`s World Food Programme to raise awareness about world hunger. Diane Sawyer called her "a tiny literary giant" on Good Morning America.

Hoping to instill her love of writing in others, she taught her first class at a local elementary school the year her first book, Flying Fingers, debuted; since then, she has spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world. In 2010, she delivered the speech "What Adults Can Learn from Kids" at TED becoming the youngest ever person to do so. The speech received over one million views online and has been translated into over 40 different languages. That same year, Adora started organizing TEDxRedmond.
