#HumansBehindTEDxCT Nadine Sims

Nadine Simms

Self-proclaimed Grammar Guru of the TEDxCapeTown team, Nadine Sims is the newbie, having joined in July 2017.

This journalism student decided to volunteer after current TEDxCapeTown member, Wyomia Mouwers, informed her that the team was looking for a writer to help with content.

In response to our question on why she enjoys working with the team, Nadine said: “Everyone has an intriguing story worth sharing and I enjoy listening to people, hearing the stories and telling it. TEDxCapeTown has afforded me the opportunity to do just that.”

“I have learnt so much in this short space of time and I hope to spend much more time crafting my skills within the team while sharing idea’s that are worth spreading.”
