A TED talk on strokes: what they are, how they happen and their devastating effects.
After a close relative of mine had a stroke, I began asking questions about the disease that affects so many people worldwide, which led me to choosing this topic for my TED talk.
I hope you learn something from this talk and become more aware of how to react when someone is having a stroke because the faster you act, the higher the chance of survival.
Minutes save lives.

Aratrika enjoys reading, playing badminton and art. Her aim is to become more confident with public speaking and she chose to do this talk as it is a topic she is interested in.
