Kenny joined The Island Foundation at nine years old and stayed until she graduated primary school.
Kenny loved attending the program - she had fun learning to make crafts out of recycled materials and bamboo, making music, going to the beach for learning about marine ecosystems and learning English.
She says, “I definitely prefer experiential and practical learning, even now as an adult – I learn best that way.”
Now, Kenny is in her second year of a bachelor’s degree in business management – the first person in her family to attend university.
In the months before the Covid-19 pandemic hit, Kenny was volunteering with The Island Foundation.
Kenny says that volunteering, “was improving my confidence through public speaking, and taught me about NGOs and working with children – I really enjoyed story telling with the students.”
