About the Author:

My passion is education because I feel that so many more people would be able to lead happier, more successful and fulfilling lives if we all had access to a more inspiring education system. My vision is that we have an inspiring teacher in every classroom; I realise that there's plenty to be done in order to bring that to life, but committed to doing what it takes to bring together the people and resources to make that happen. As an Associate Partner at Lighthouse International and Co-Founder of Lighthouse Kidz I am committed to developing my ability to bring together emerging leaders and social entrepreneurs to make a positive difference in the world. Presently I'm working on a variety of initiatives such as bringing together the people, expertise and resources to ensure that everyone has access to clean water.
