As a student in one of the nation’s most rigorous STEM high schools, 16-year-old Eileen Huang never expected to write poetry, let alone have it change her life. In this funny, surprising, and moving talk, she tells the unexpected story of how her passion for writing and storytelling took her to the White House, got her to meet the First Lady, and, ultimately, revealed her true potential and self-confidence.
