About me & my work:

In 2004, my family and I founded The Khayay School, an international early childhood education institute, in Yangon, Myanmar. With 140 students from 21 countries, we integrated multilingualism (along with other educational programs) as a tool for socio-emotional development.

With 10 years of research backing up our multilingual teaching method, I began designing the educational learning tools to accommodate this curriculum. Our goal? To establish an equal learning platform for children from all backgrounds-- not only financially-- but culturally. With the ever changing global landscape, children should not be deterred from being active, global citizens because they grew up in a less developed nation with lower educational quality. Together with my team at The Khayay School, I am creating educational learning environments that will redefine what an international education really should be.

I also happen to really love dogs.
