Award-winning film-makers and inspirational story-tellers from Singapore, Tay and Val, are living examples of dreamers who have cycled and traveled across the globe on project, “I Believe That Dreams Can Come True”. Having set off in March 2010, they aimed to cycle to as many countries as they can, walk into the lives of local people, and then document their personal stories about their dreams on videos. These videos are then posted on their website as short stories and shared with the world. With the intention of “One Dream Shared, One Dream Inspired”, their stories have inspired many to seek out their dreams and achieve them. For the last 3 years, they have created a chain of dreams inspiring dreams across 12 countries. They have conducted numerous sharing events in schools and to the public empowering people to do the things they truly want to do and be the person they want to be. They have collected at least 2600 dreams and inspired countless lives. Tay is a storyteller who has 12 years of experience working in the film and TV industry as a Director. She has won a World Gold Award for Best Direction at the New York Festivals for Documentary Feature “Little Big Dreams” which was distributed internationally and numerous other awards in South East Asia. Val is an actress and TV Producer/Director. She has 5 years of experience working in the digital media industry and 13 years of experience in film/TV industry. She won the iJudges award in Asia’s first multi-country online talent competition, iTalenstar; and has contributed to various marketing campaigns that have won the Webby Awards (Oscars for the internet). The duo is currently working on a series of multi-media books and a full-length documentary about their journey. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
