Each speaker embodies the essence of pushing boundaries and daring to imagine a brighter future.

Now, or Never.
Now, or Never.
Now, or Never.

Our theme 'Now or Never' centrally focuses on the value of time, and the bold use of this saying gives our theme a sense of urgency. Our theme is a continuation of the carpe diem mentality, seizing the day. With these ideas floating around though, our theme is also up for interpretation - it's an umbrella theme that covers a variety of topics. 'Now or Never' implies a risk, in using the word NEVER there is a chance that unless the chosen subject is talked about immediately, it risks never being brought to attention. It refers to chance, and how this is the one chance to speak. Speak NOW or risk NEVER being heard.
