Congrats to the students participated in our pitching competition! It has been a rollercoaster ride through out these two months, but we have witnessed how every students persisted and conquered their fears to step on stage to present their ideas to professionals. They showed us how much every person can achieve if they believe in themselves.
This summer we held a free social entrepreneurship bootcamp for 20 ethnic minority secondary school students from the ages of 14 to 18. They learned different skillets from design thinking, social impact, business innovation to public speaking.
In these 8 weeks, they have come up with their own social initiatives, with mentor support from Tegan Smyth, Karishma Kash Samtani, Andrew Chan James Bishop and Yasir Naveed.
We are to proud to announce the five teams that work hard towards their projects and their initiatives to help their communities.
Winner: The Wandering Eyes: An online LGBT discord community First Runner-Up: EMM for EMs: Providing liberal studies tutoring for ethic minority students. Second Runner-UP: AlwaysHere: Cantonese lessons for domestic workers Best Presenter: Debin Limbu Our other two amazing projects: Post It: Mental health app and awareness projects Revamp: Multicultural programs for social inclusion
The event wouldn't be possible without our judges Benson Lau from Zencode, Julianne Yang - Career Coaching & Workshops, Rita Vyas Nagarkar from Institute of Learning and Development who encouraged and gave to our students helpful feedback.
Let's not end our conversation here. We will offer continuous support for the students. Please reach out to us if you would like to contribute to our community.
