TEDX Rovigo The landscape of the soul Monica Silva

TEDX Rovigo The landscape of the soul Monica Silva

TEDxRovigo Landscape: Share your Vision “In the boundless landscape of the soul, there are beautiful creatures who are nothing else but ourselves.  Fantasy is a place to heal all diseases, a place where the soul is regenerated every day to make us a better person”   I participated to  TEDx Talks last September 24, 2016. It was an incredible experience and one of the most intense moments of my life.When I was invited to participate in the TEDxRovigo Landscape: Share your vision, I wanted to talk about my research on the psychology in the portraiture. Then I remembered that I wanted for a long time, go on the stages of the TED to tell the story of my life as a demonstration that we can change the path of our destiny. My story is very strong and full of dramatic moments, but thanks to those stories I am now a strong and determined person. The pauses that you will see as I speak, are given by the fact that  my throat was clutched as I told the few episodes. There are scars too difficult to delete but I am stronger, and the proof is that I am here today, proud and free to tell. My painful past does not want to be a lament but a share and stimulate healing to people like me who have suffered violence and has never managed to overcome completely dark periods. I am a witness proving that anyone can change their destiny into something wonderful. I hope that my story can be an example to someone to radically change horrible stories,  find their way to stand into the light and overcome the bad memories. I ask you to share this video and talk about it with your friends to help me complete my mission. I promised myself since very little that I would be taken away from that life, and I would tell the world what happened to me. My wish is to create a book with the story of my life going over the places of memory, a complex project but necessary because as certain events have occurred to me, I’m sure that still the same happens to so many women and girls out there. Shortly I will create a Crowdfunding, so I ask for your help. Thank you for your words of love and affection that I receive daily. A wide huge hug full of light and positive energy. My talk starts from 0:30 sec with a video intro with my pictures done for this edition. Enjoy it! TEDxRovigo Standing Ovation from monicasilva on...

TEDxRovigo Emotional Speech

TEDxRovigo Emotional Speech

In the boundless landscape of the soul, there are beautiful creatures who are nothing else but ourselves. “ Fantasy is a place to heal all diseases, a place where the soul is regenerated every day to make us a better person” TEDxRovigo: When dreams come true I was talking with my producer a month ago of my future plans and the list of things to do. I confessed her a desire to get on the TED stage to tell my story. Three days later, I get an email from Luca Grandi, the curator of TEDx in Rovigo asking for my participation. I couldn’t believe it !! I responded immediately saying yes, with the least clue that I would be crossing a new chapter of my life. I thought a lot about what to bring to my first TEDx. I had already prepared a slide of work I do on the relationship of the photography in psychology and somehow I decided that it would be perfect. The idea that came firstly to my mind was to tell my story but I thought that maybe I was not ready yet, I had not the project complete to make my book and I thought it was not yet the time to go and talk about my past. Then a few days later, when I had definitely decided to prepare my speech on the issue of psychology in portraiture, I received an email, from an American guy who lives in Massachusetts and follows me in the web. It was a short and concise email saying good luck for my participation in the TED talks, and that he wanted to say that my photography was a daily part of his life, and that I helped him to see the world through my eyes and my words in my blogs were a source of inspiration for him. At that point I thought that life was sending me a message. It was time to tell my story publicly and on a stage for it can be seen as an example that only we can change our destiny in the way that best represents us. In less than a week, I decided to put down a track of my memories to help me to tell the story, I prepared a video of introduction to my speech, I wrote a sentence in English and Italian, I bought a songtrack, hired a speaker and so we created a video slide with the help of my son Davis and his friend Rodolfo Lissia who is an young film director. With these elements, I took a deep breath of courage and a lot of emotion, to jump on the TEDxRovigo stage for the first time, in every sense, to tell my story. Despite blacks moments spent in my past, I decided a long time ago, to thank life every day. I am a survivor and everything that happens to me today is reason for joy and thanksgiving to the Gods for giving me the strength to understand how to leverage those painful moments in a creative form till I became the woman I am today. I want to smile and rejoice in all the things of my daily life, never complain of the moments that do not work, but on the contrary, find strength from them to overthrow the things...

TEDx Rovigo Monica Silva Motivational Speaker

“The vast horizons generate complex ideas, small horizons restricted ideas” Victor Hugo Countdown: -13 days to TEDx of Rovigo where I’ll be involved. I’m excited, radiant and happy but I have also a lot of anxiety. TED is one of those platforms that provokes me strong emotions in several senses. Be on a TED stage is a big responsibility because what one presents to their public, should be special, of great impact and especially, helpful to those who attend. I will talk about “The landscape of the soul” and how creativity can save someone’s life. Gibran Kahlil Gibran said that ‘The strongest souls are hardened by suffering and that the strongest characters are sprinkled with scars. On that thought, I decided to tell a story of a little girl and it takes courage to hold a hand of a child and tell her story to the world, because sometimes life is not in itself a fairy tale but it can become if only we really want it. On the stage of TEDxRovigo, I will tell how the imagination can be the key to make a change in our lives and how it was an accomplice to let me become the woman I am today. I’ll be waiting for you  with open arms. All infos can be found here on this link:...
