The theme of our event is "Meraki" It is a term used by modern Greeks to signify the idea of adding love and the essence of ourselves in everything we do. Being so passionate about something, we "give something of ourselves" while performing it.

By showcasing the journey of our speakers, we wish to inspire the students and listeners to find that "something" for which their heartbeats and work towards achieving that with their entire soul and passion.
