Majd Shidiac

Social activist, poet, and radical thinker

Born and raised in Beirut Lebanon, Majd is currently a business student at the American university of Beirut, yet he sounds nothing like your typical business student.

He has been writing poetry for as long he can remember, and he first started performing with a spoken word poetry collective called “EL- Yafta”.

Majd is a social activist, interested in manipulating all types of platforms to deliver messages he is passionate about and inspire change; he was a camp educator at Beyond Learning L.L.C working with kids aging from 7 to 9.

He is currently an organizing team member at TEDx Beirut and is also co-hosting TEDx Hamra Street Salon, two of his favorite self-expression and learning platforms so far!
