While conducting her PhD in Neuroscience at University of Cambridge, Sara founded secondGO, a social start up that extends the educational opportunities of university students to others, and was the president of Beyond Profit, the social entrepreneurship society at Cambridge. The combination of these opportunities, her childhood in Mozambique and her previous experience as a teacher sparkled her current interest in University-generated Science and Technology-based innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals. This led, prior to joining the Global Challenge Forum, to her position as a Business Analyst and Educational Content Developer for WaterScope - a Cambridge-based start-up that combats water inequality through a 3D printed water-testing microscope.
