Farzan Ahmad Khan is currently a senior at New York University Abu Dhabi studying Electrical Engineering and a proud member of the NYUAD Cricket Team. He has made the most out of his time at the university by serving as a Residential Assistant, leading student interest groups and serving as a Senator as part of Student Government. Farzan wants to use his TEDxNYUAD talk to inspire an active reevaluation of the way we think about failure. Our perception of failure can have a major effect on our mental well-being and it is easy to pick up negative practices that tend to go on in the background every time we are faced with a struggle. Farzan hopes that his talk will challenge the audience to look at their own instances of failure and to place them within a broader context of acceptance instead of shame.
