Husband and wife team Johnny and Stephanie are both from the creative industry. Both came from humble family backgrounds and both have experienced similar obstacles when it comes to choosing a "lesser known" career in their teens.
Luckily, Johnny met his mentor & art teacher, who went through great pain and effort to grant him his passion of pursuing Fashion as a GCE 'A' Level subject during college. This led to him scoring a scholarship at Art Center College in Pasadena Los Angeles and the rest is history. Today he is a successful creative professionally, having built a career in New York City to leading creative agencies BBDO and BBH in Shanghai and is now Chief Creative Officer leading the 72andSunny Sydney & Singapore offices.
Stephanie was not as fortunate to have met a mentor but found herself getting into the creative advertising agency for half of her career, starting as an Account Executive in MRM McCann, and then BBH Singapore and finally BBH Shanghai. After leaving advertising, she taught yoga for a couple of years before getting married and had a daughter. It was through her research into education for her daughter that she chanced upon and was inspired by Sir Ken Robinson's most watched Ted Talk video "Do schools kill creativity?". She realised that there is no perfect school system anywhere and decided to embark on this project to strive to provide a more balanced and holistic approach for her daughter's education. She hopes to provide this as a platform for like-minded parents and influence the Singapore culture that academic success is not the only way to success in life.
