The Thandie Newton keynotes are compelling discussions that focus on how individuals develop ideas about themselves. In particular, Newton uses her personal experiences of otherness during her childhood to explore how she saw herself in relation to her homologous peers.
As a high-profile actress, Newton faces scrutiny from the media, film directors and producers on a daily basis. Newton appeared in films including 'Mission Impossible' and 'The Pursuit of Happiness.' In terms of her education, Newton studied social anthropology at Downing College. In 2011, Newton was selected to deliver a TED Talk that discussed embracing the uniqueness inherent in each individual.
Discussing that individuals' perceptions of themselves are not real, but projections of the mind, the Thandie Newton keynotes encourage individuals to not let their personal ideas of themselves be the only thing that define them.
