Inspiring stories from students at AIMS

Posted by: Emily McManus

From the TED Prize blog:

More AIMS Student Talks: Be inspired by the stories of current and former AIMS students — young Africans whose lives have been changed through access to a top-notch scientific education at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. Every two weeks, the TED Prize team uploads three talks from the May 12 launch party for the NextEinstein initiative in South Africa (part of the TED Prize wish of physicist Neil Turok). This week we’ve posted talks from two students, Daphne and Viani, as well as a musical performance by Vusi Mahlasela, who dedicates a song to the students of AIMS.

Watch Daphne’s talk below, and see many more amazing talks and performances on the NextEinstein YouTube Channel.
