Jacqueline always knew her life-long passion lies in child enrichment. She talked to parents about what they really want for their kids to learn. Most parents realized that technology and their kids are inseparable, but they wished their kids would use this technology more productively. This inspired the idea of educating kids to learn code to become creative thinkers. Hence, the origin of CodeJuniors– a place where kids learn coding the fun and engaging way.
“We want our kids to see themselves as creators and designers, as people who can create things with digital media, not just browse, chat, and play games. There is so much more our kids can do with technology. As a parent, we can help our kids by giving them an early start to harness the benefits of technology and fulfill their potential” says Jacqueline.
Coming from marketing background in the IT industry, she has found her vocation to transform the way kids learn and use technology.
