Sarah Bracken City Host,
Design Kids Sydney
Sarah Bracken volunteers as a city host for The Design Kids Sydney in-between her day job as a graphic designer and web developer. She loves being endlessly inspired by all of the talented folk who attend the monthly #TDKtuesday events. Her keen interest in neuroscience has lead to a side passion for brand strategy and artificial intelligence. She has learnt from indulging in an embarrassing amount of self-help literature that the most enduring source of happiness in life is found in giving back and so to maintain a level of sanity, spends her spare time volunteering for the Sea Shepherd, local animal sanctuaries and social enterprises.
