"Growing up with two younger siblings, I loved seeing their spontaneous creativity and their growth over the years. I see the same creativity and growth in the kids at KidsAccomplish!. They're progress is truly inspiring, and I love being part of the process. It's important for kids to learn to love learning rather than see it as a chore."
Tiffany is a sophomore at Yale-NUS College who was born and raised in the United States. She loves the international experience of studying in Singapore. Although she hasn't declared her major yet, she's interested in working in finance and loves literature. In her free time, you'll probably find her nose-deep in a poetry book.

"When I first heard of KidsAccomplish!, I was immediately drawn to want to volunteer at their weekly sessions. I believe that engaging kids to think about our everyday current affairs and the tensions that surround them through a safe and fun place is crucial to enabling them to be personally invested in the world beyond the classroom, and to then hopefully begin to take small steps in changing it to a better place."
Natalie is currently a sophomore who is undecided about her major because she cannot seem to choose either an Arts or Science route. She really enjoys interacting with kids and feels that she often plays along as a peer rather than a teacher, until she remembers she has several essays due that night. If she is not joking around with the kids, she is usually snapping photos with her camera and updating KidsAccomplish!'s social media pages.

"My favorite part of KidsAccomplish! is definitely the diversity of lessons, concepts, and skills we have engaged with and how the students have been so ready to try these new ideas with us. From theatre, to tea making, to political theory, the absolute breadth of ideas we've been able to engage the children with has been nothing short of incredible. We constantly push ourselves to extend and innovate our pedagogy, and this has kept the organizational spirit of reinvention strong!"
