Title: Aspiring Social Entrepreneur
Bio:
Currently doing research on a social entrepreneurship venture that aims to provide additional options to secondary school students, harnessing their latent talents and exposing them to a multitude of possibilities that they can pursue further when they enter the workforce. Simultaneously pursuing freelance jobs related to the creative arts, web and Android development. My aptitude for all things technical and geeky gave me a successful career within the Enterprise IT space for a decade (5 years in the UK) before I started to seriously re-educate myself in the creative arts industry in order to master art, animation, storytelling and the production workflow used in world-class studios. My career change was slow-going and so I started to teach English at professional centres in KL part-time. My teaching experience started me on my journey to finding solutions to tackle education shortcomings and 21st Thinkerers is the culmination of my efforts so far.

Challenge Entries

An alternative school that aims to develop underserved youths into future Makers, exposing them to real skills in the Sciences whilst leveling up traditional vocational training. The future is a place where the arts and sciences eventually converge and today's schools are not remotely ready for it
