After university, I began writing articles online and capturing stories in my community. This led to opportunities working in content marketing with local and multinational businesses. As I built my career, I noticed that creativity, adaptability and problem solving skills were essential to the success of businesses and individuals.

My experiences led me to wonder whether schools were preparing youth with the skills to thrive in our rapidly changing world. In 2016, I returned to university and became a certified teacher in Vancouver BC. During my time as a teacher, I have become increasingly fascinated with the importance of play, technology, and creativity in the classroom.
