So what's my story?
I grew up and went to school on Bribie Island. As a student, I found school to be too ‘easy’ and without a challenge I quickly lost interest.
Being disinterested in school led to me dodging classes, missing assignments, and faking sick days - after all, ‘none of it matters’, right? I graduated highschool at 16 without a QCE and quickly realised that it did matter, all of it, and that I was grossly underprepared for the world as it was.
I was keen to make a change in the world and decided the best way to do that was to tackle the problems that I faced as a student and to help ensure they it didn’t happen to anyone else. A local teacher saw my passion and agreed to mentor me in education pedagogy – that planted a seed that never stopped growing. I got stuck into tutoring, after-school care and volunteering for disadvantaged youth, I did a bridging course to get my QCE and began studying Primary Education.
I then dropped out of university and spent time travelling the world as a private teacher, during this time I focused on learning different pedagogies’ and approaches to learning. Somewhere along the way I became fascinated with project-based learning and entrepreneurship. What happened next?
