EMILY TENG - Chief of Awesome In a nutshell: Perpetually in motion, Emily is passionate about all her causes. Her infectious energy resonates far and wide, especially within the communities she has touched. ‘Awesome’ is not just her favorite word but her mantra. It is used to describe everything and everyone. What gets her out of bed every day is the drive to help youth realise their own inner ‘awesome-ness’ and potential to change the world.

HUI LING LIM - Craft Queen + PlayMaker It's truly amazing to see what students can do when they have an out-of-the-box thinker of a workshop lead like Hui Ling.  We've dubbed her the craft queen because she is our go-to for anything hands on and artsy.  Hui Ling started her own subscription box business catering to kids through literacy + art but now focuses her time between her new venture (marketing super trendy kids wearables) and with our community of students.

YI HAN TAN - Scientist She's incredibly passionate about all things...yep, you guessed it - science!  She's a research scientist at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and leads our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Math) component placing an emphasis on science through discovery, hands-on experiments and wonder!  Science is engaging and relevant with real world applications and one of her first workshops with us was  teaching our students scientific concepts through the art of molecular gastronomy!

We also would like to pay gratitude to the countless and passionate WorldChangeAgents (volunteers) who serve every single week of the year.  Without our amazing community of individuals who live out our 'Do what you can, with what you have' motto, the youth we directly impact would never experience how it feels to live out #BeyondAwesome potential.
