Responsibilities

Founder - Edzuki

Aug 2018 - Present

Giving voices to individuals within education. www.edzuki.com

We believe that effective education only happens when individuals have autonomy and are given choice when making decisions. This is to say that students are given the opportunity to discover what they are capable of, rather than what is expected of them. We're on a journey to find out what we can do to encourage this to happen. If you're interested in joining us on our journey, e-mail us at team@edzuki.com.

Skills

Creativity

Through a collection of projects I have worked on, I have gradually developed my ability to think with an open mind and to come up with solutions to problems faced, for example, when crafting digital prototypes.


UI/UX Design

I have used a range of tools to create prototypes for applications for personal projects and other clients. I particularly enjoy the craftsmanship that is needed to turn a fragile idea or concept into a prototype that considers the needs of the user.


Research

Over the past 2-3 years, I have dived deeper into educational research. I have done this through carrying out my own research among other students and teachers, along with analysing research done by academics from around the world.


Teaching

By leading lower year school clubs, this has given me the opportunity to improve my teaching & coaching skills. For several years I have helped younger school pupils develop their knowledge about business and technology, through classes about enterprise and programming.


Clubs & Activities

Meeting with edtech founders

Sep 2017 - Present

Meeting with the founders of edtech institutions such as Costner, Edvinca and Mathigon to discuss future challenges facing education such as teacher shortages and inequality among students, has broadened my perspective on global education.


Creative Innovation Masterclass

May 2018 - Jun 2019

Through running a creative innovation masterclass, I found it very enjoyable bringing my knowledge of the intersection of psychology, technology and design to younger students. My confidence in presenting to and educating individuals has strengthened through teaching.

Represented the school rugby team over the course of my secondary school duration and learnt some very important lessons along the way.
