Getting started in Education happened by chance for me. Having graduated with a degree in Building, one would expect that I would be in yellow boots for my first job. Instead, I was organising teaching seminars and examination skills workshops for Cambridge University trainers. Through my interactions with these passionate academics, I learnt the importance educators play and their influence in shaping minds.
I joined the teaching fraternity and experienced the magic myself. During my stint at my alma mater, I watched how girls transformed after spending hours with me in detention classes. I watched as shy girls blossomed into outspoken leaders who rose to the occasion given the opportunity. It is an indescribable feeling and something I am glad to have experienced.
Hoping to try something new, I left teaching. Somehow, I never strayed far from being around kids and making a difference in someone’s life. Now being here in Yale-NUS, I look forward to inspire change and hope the work I do in CIPE can help make that happen.
