Hi Justin,

 

Thanks for connecting - Yeah, Grahamstown. It's been more than 20 years and two other universities later, but I still consider Rhodes to be MY alma mater.

 

I tried to write on the TEDx page, but couldn't find a comment link. Please enlighten me as to what I'm doing wrong?

 

Warm regards
