ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Delphine Ang is passionate about empowering and challenging teens and young people to “bloom where they are” – to discover who they really are, what they really want, what really inspire them and where they really want to go.
Certified as a Youth Mentor Coach and Youth Leadership Coach with the Youth Coaching Institute, Delphine has become increasingly involved in working with teens and youths, having actively facilitated programs and given talks on Resilience in schools. She has also been invited to present to parents on positive parenting. In Jul 2016, Delphine created and organized the seminar on BEING A HAPPY TEEN – Happy Teens, Happy Families with Julie and Andrews Matthews, international best-selling authors and speakers. The event was highly successful, attracting about 500 parents and teens. In Mar 2018, Delphine created another inspiring and powerful seminar - RESILIENT TEENS, RESILIENT FAMILIES withYossi Ghinsberg, international best-selling author of Jungle based on his true-life story of being lost alone in the Amazon for 20 days. His story has been made into a movie starring Daniel Redcliff as Yossi.
As a mother of four, including three teenagers, Delphine fully understands the agony, the guilt and helplessness as a parent due to her personal struggles. She also feels the pain in her teenage children seeing how they 'desperately' fight to find their footing in their world facing tumultuous school work pressure, social pressure and relationship challenges. Delphine's deep compassion and passion moves her to reach out and support teenagers and parents, inspiring hope, building burnt bridges and empowering individuals to:
Turn growing pains into Growing Gains;
Go from a place of helplessness to a place of Empowerment;
Move from failures to Growth (for the individuals and the family);
Go from getting stuck in obstacles and problems to exploring Possibilities and Opportunities;
Shift from a space of conflict to a space of Partnership;
Turn 'battle' scars into Badges of Honour;
Change focus on weaknesses and negative traits to Strengths and Virtues.
Delphine holds a Bachelor of Degree in Business Studies from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. She also holds a certification in Education Psychology.
