TEDx Talks
'My name is Jared Abdul Rahman, and I am Sabahan.'
Being one of the masterminds behind the "Pillars of Sabah", Jared shares his transformational journey in discovering his identity as a true Sabahan. A multifaceted individual who fearlessly and consistently pursued his passions in life, he is both an
educator and filmmaker with a core for storytelling. He is living proof that one can achieve anything
as long as one puts his/her heart into it. Mr. Jared Abdul Rahman strives to address
socioenviropolitical issues on a global level, by engaging communities through film and other
awareness tools with a purpose to spark discussion as he believes this is the necessary starting point
for positive change. Having spent the last 13 years living and working overseas, he has finally
decided to return to his beloved homeland here in Sabah. Currently with his own film and media
business, he dedicates himself to community projects aimed at raising awareness, to kickstart
discussions, and by using his skills as a scientist and teacher, to achieve positive change. One of the
masterminds behind the "Pillars of Sabah", Jared is the very definition of someone who is
continuously building and opening new windows of learning opportunities in order to create a better
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

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
