I am a husband of one beautiful wife, and a father of two children. I also happen to be a Teaching Assistant in the National University of Singapore in the Department of Psychology for the last 8 years. I am passionate about mentoring the next generation, and am interested in how teaching and learning can be optimised; what allows individuals to thrive in an educational institution; and issues related to youth, religion and education in general.
