Variation Amy

Meet our new colleague, Amy Chin!

She will be working on project TheGoals.org and fund applications for Edumanity’s projects.

What gets you up in the morning?

To walk my dog, first of all 🙂

I also look forward to learning new things every day. It’s important to stay hungry and foolish.

What is your best characteristic?

I observe, understand and analyse. I create order out of chaos and communicate complicated ideas in simple words.

Do you have any hidden talents?

While I can neither swim nor drive, I can change a light bulb and make tasty Swedish meatballs.

What interests do you have? 

1. Reading: novels, magazines, articles. I’m not a fast reader, but I read something every day.

2. Make things: Anything from doodling to paper collage to sewing a shopping bag, I find time to make something with my hands every week.

3. Mobile photography: Ever since I downloaded Instagram on my telephone two years ago I’ve been taking and uploading pictures almost every day.

What is your dream destination?

I don’t have a to-visit list, because I believe in discovering something amazing wherever I go. I just need to have my mind and eyes open. But in general I’m more intrigued by older places. New urban spaces feel boringly similar, while all old towns are unique.

What gets you up in the morning?

I am passionate about meeting new people, and visiting new places. I love working in projects that, in concrete ways, improve the lives of others.

What is your best characteristic?

I enjoy talking to and in front of people. The bigger the group the better!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I’m an expert at making crème brûlée. I have also jumped parachute 12 times.

What interests do you have? 

My big interest in life is riding, something I’ve been doing since childhood. Above all, show jumping and dressage. I have also worked as a riding instructor and off.

What is your dream destination?
Traveling is a passion of mine and the only continent I have not visited yet (except the poles) is South America. I really want to go to Costa Rica to see wild tapirs!

Lotta, warm welcome to Edumanity!

Håkan Dennersten

[stag_intro]Håkan Dennersten, the CEO of Edumanity, was interviewed in the Sydsvenskan newspaper today:[/stag_intro]

The courses we build are a synthesis of gaming, social networking and traditional e-learning. We allow students to learn as much from their peers, as from their teachers. Our company is pioneering crowd-learning online.

….

All pieces of the puzzle are coming together; capital, big clients, a dedicated team, and a business model. I believe that Edumanity will grow rapidly, but our biggest competitors are conferences and traditional e-learning. We are ready to take the fight, and convince our future clients to make the shift.
