Sarah Li

Guest Presenter Mind the Matrix ASIA SEASON 2

Sarah started off as a commentator at the age of 9 back in China. Although still a kid and with a very unusual childhood. She learnt to be organised, detail-oriented, work well to time frames and enjoy diversity. 
Sarah was the kind of poster girl any parent would be proud of:  She could have pursued a comfortable life in China, with a degree in a good university, a subsequent job and just fit in the mould.  Sarah decided that this type life was not for her. She wanted to push and challenge herself and explore her wide range of abilities.
So, off she went to New Zealand and started a restaurant. As a successful entrepreneur at only 23, Sarah faced a situation of life and death when diagnosed with a brain tumor.

She sold her business and returned to China. There she took a long hard look at herself and asked herself a profound question: What if I have another chance to live, would I make the same choices?

That is the day Sarah decided she would only follow her heart. To be truly herself and do things without hesitation and delay. 
And here she is, back in health in full glory. She has owned metro best restaurant, set up the largest Chinese media company in NZ, owns a branding company and a financial IT company in China, holds double major MBAs and is also active as an actress.

Sarah is aware these are not 'successes' but merely experiences. A following of passions and inspirations. Art being the most important one. The art of life and the dream of a greater vision for humanity. A world that consists of glory, peace, praises, joy and abundance. Through the collaboration of like minded talented people Sarah has realised the true potential for change.
The Next Dimension being a perfect platform for this.
