Sarah Lewis – Embrace the near win


I am a medical scientist by training and am currently in my 3rd year of medical school at the University of Pretoria. My inclination to the biological sciences is only but a glimpse of who I am. At heart, I am a budding social entrepreneur, a lover of the arts, a dreamer, and a thinker. I love being involved in world changing initiatives, hence why I choose to be involved in TEDx Pretoria. TEDx Pretoria, to me, is a well of wealth in terms of gaining wisdom; life changing experiences from the, “ideas worth sharing;” and an opportunity to become part of a worldwide society.
