9-year-old Manas believed in 'Happily Ever Afters', being wide-eyed and naive. As she grew up, she realised that life is no fairy tale. Soon, she sees that heartbreaks, disappointments and failures are part of life. By drawing support from Disney movies, her friends and her family, she sought for purpose. Now, 15-year-old Manas reconciles and finds meaning in life even with tragic endings. She urges all of you to write your own stories and speak for yourself. Join her in a tender tale of love, reality, and meaning. Tiruveedula Manasvini is a 15 year old student at Temasek Junior College. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
