“When I first learned of 42, I believed it represented what KIK Innovation strives to achieve but at a global scale. Great minds are everywhere and 42 is ‘altruism’ brought into reality. Starting my career as a social worker and then as I moved into education, entrepreneurship, and business, I was still searching for solutions that removed some of the greatest barriers to education for disadvantaged young people. 42 is a great solution to unlocking the potential in anyone”.

“Having worked in the education sector for much of my career I have witnessed the dynamic challenges that the explosion in the tech sector has had on the traditional education pathways in the sector. Industries are crying out for coding talent now and 42 Adelaide provides the solution to matching employer needs with students from all walks of life. Completely free, 42’s disruptive education model removes the barriers to education and unlocks people’s potential to be their best. I’m very proud to be associated with such an epic organisation and together with the rest of our team love to witness our students progress along the 42 pathway to become the a best tech talent in Australia and globally.”
