Wan Ching has always taken an interest in the arts which led her to pursue a Diploma in TV Production from the Malaysia Institute of Art (MIA) after high school. During this time she learned about the relationship and dynamics between stories and characters, and wondered how she could help to make better stories in people’s lives. Taking her college mentor’s advice she then embarked on a journey to help young people connect with their gifts and aptitude via education fairs and counselling workshops, through the initiatives of the Centre for Malaysian Chinese Studies. Two years later Wan Ching joined a youth organization that worked amongst youth at the grassroots level, specializing in organizing youth camps, workshops and other youth related programmes. At the end of the seventh year with the organization in which she took on various roles and responsibilities, she decided to take a break from paid work to prepare for an even more amazing adventure – the arrival of her first child.
Four years later in 2008 Wan Ching continued her initial calling in people development at a fully Montessori centre at the same time completing the International Diploma in Montessori Pedagogy.
