Teoh Min Chia

Teoh Min Chia is a food science graduate who recognized how her strengths aligned with the needs of her community. Fueled by her passion for education and the belief that quality education should be a fundamental right for all, she co-founded The Other School.

The Other School is an impact-driven training company that revolutionizes the approach to learning. Min Chia firmly believes that learning, whether for adults or children, should be more engaging and inclusive. Ensuring education for all extends beyond providing access; it also involves meeting learners where they are. Together with The Other School’s team, she has delivered their programs to over 5000 individuals from SMEs, corporate, and private educational institutions. Simultaneously, The Other School supports the employment of full-time teachers in refugee learning centers, positively impacting the lives of more than 200 learners since 2018.

Prior to her current role, Min Chia served as a community builder, fostering community engagement and driving positive social impact through social entrepreneurship initiatives for students and working adults. She also volunteered as a student fellow at the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI), a fellow at Ashoka ChangemakerXchange, and served as the president of Hands of Hope Malaysia.

In a world inundated with information, Min Chia believes that effective learning should resemble a compelling story or an enthralling performance.

To me, making an impact means establishing a new norm within the community and embracing the process of unlearning and relearning.
