Soulaima Gourani has always been ambitious, but nobody expected that she would go far in life. In fourth grade her teacher even said that she should lower her ambitions since she was a girl, had dark skin, and was called Soulaima. She found ways of overcoming these “challenges” and realized that her emotional and social skills were in high demand. As Gourani explains in this TEDxCopenhagen video, a greater focus on these “soft” qualities is needed in our schools to ensure the future happiness and success of our children.
