Doreen is a mother of 3 and was a teacher for almost 15 years. Her sons have studied in different types of schools, from subsidized to DSS, private, and international schools. She herself also taught in schools of various bandings. All these experiences pushed her to have deep reflection on what education really means to children. In 2011, she started the anti-P3 TSA campaign. In 2014, she joined EDiversity and began heavily involved in various projects to promote diversity in education. Inspired by EDiversity, she boldly initiated a gap year experiential learning programme for her son after completing P.6 in 2015.
