「當你去讀一個學位,往往要寫一篇很長的論文,會消耗很多時間與心血,但是最後去看這篇論文的人可能不會超過十個。」她覺得一件努力的事情沒有人可以分享,是一件非常遺憾的事情。「這裡年紀最大的一個學生已經78歲了,他每個星期一都會過來唱歌,後來開了迷你演唱會唱給很多人聽。」

2019.03.21 (thu) 《有你最whole》

Lifelong Labs嘅創辦人Mo,因為自己細個時讀過好多唔同嘅學校,感受過好多唔同嘅教育方式,返嚟香港就發現冇一種方式係佢覺得最適合嘅,於是就自己開咗呢家創意教育中心,3至99歲嘅人都可以嚟學嘢~


佢會聆聽唔同人嘅夢想,睇下佢地有咩目標,再設定課程~ 個個人都要tailor made,咁咪好辛苦?好彩仲有Mo嘅媽媽Ven支持,同佢一齊keep住呢服教學嘅熱誠!
