Theme: Hidden Figures

May 13, 2018
5:00pm - 11:00pm EAT
(UTC +3hrs)
Khartoum, Al Kharţūm
Sudan

This year TEDxUniversityofKhartoum theme is a stage where the spotlight will be on the obscured parts of stories, on those in the backstage whom we don’t usually see their point of view and on the details that make all the difference, but however, remain unnoticed. So whether they were living human beings, solid objects or unexpected virtues, we are thriving to introduce through this event ideas that would help to remove whatever is blurring our vision from noticing these small details at the back.
Celebrating our UofKers and their ideas that are worth spreading, we are looking for originality and clarity in an idea that can be presented via our platform in 18 minutes, as well as maintaining the guideline from TED community that no talks should address religion or politics.

Mohamed Husham Omer ElTaher

Medical student at university of Khartoum, Faculty of Medicine.The Media Officer for Students Association of Medical Education & Research ( SAMER).
This is that part of the journey where I get to use some deep lines and sophisticated words to show how much of an deep but yet a humble person I -really or not- am . In a nutshell. A guy, studying medicine at UofK , was given a platform to talk about a sin which everyone tries to avoid talkin about , but yet everyone seems to enjoy it. We’ll walk through this sin , breaking silence & walls of shame , using phrases free of shyness & “images” as a frame .
