I started my first business when I was 17 during the first year of university. Named Hero Education, it was basically a HSC tuition centre focusing on STEM subjects. I started it because education is a powerful thing, not only in the way that it shapes young people in academia, but as teachers and educators, we can change the trajectories of students, being role models before anything else.
That’s what I really focused on at Hero, to help students find their path in life. It’s always study with these kids and their parents might have even forced them to go to tutoring. The fact that we were able to provide another aspect for them, not just being a teacher but being their friend and giving guidance, really motivated me.
