Episode details

Alex Hu grew up in China, and moved to Canada when he’s in second grade. He noticed a significant difference between the two countries' educational systems, particularly in math. Despite Canada's reputation for quality education, the math curriculum lagged behind what he had experienced in China, leaving him years ahead of his peers. This realization sparked an interest in understanding and improving educational systems, and that made him discovered his passion for education.

Four years ago, during a service trip to a rural village in China, Alex witnessed the harsh realities faced by children who lived without basic necessities and struggled to learn due to inadequate resources and unqualified teachers. This eye-opening experience lead him to create the Education for All foundation, where they delivers English education to children in the rural area to enable them taking control of their future.
