Being boring isn't really my thing!

Have you ever wondered if you are living a boring life? Julia Berkenfeld did and decided that this was a good question to raise in a TEDx speech! Julia went looking for the answer behind man’s most boring question. She researched standard, bored and boring people. Her conclusion is really interesting actually!

Being bored or boring is a waste of time, which is why Julia tries to make the most of it. She was raised an only child in Helmond, where she spent her childhood in a nice home and family. Now, she has her own place but usually she’s still on the road. She enjoys being outside, does horse-riding and likes reading! She’s really sociable, often goes out with friends and actively takes part in scouting. But that’s not all! You can regularly find Julia in the gym and she likes spending her free time being creative: she draws a lot and plays the guitar and the piano and sometimes sings in addition to that.

This social young lady, who still greets fellow passengers on the train and chats away at the baker’s, is really conscious of how she spends every day so she really makes the most of her life.

When she first heard of TED and TEDx, she made it her goal to once stand there on stage and inspire people. However, she’d never imagined that she would be invited to speak at TedxVenlo before her 20th birthday.

In her speech, she makes you stop and think about your life for a moment. Allow your thoughts to bubble! Who knows, you might just come to a very interesting conclusion…!
