My name is Uyen Kry.

For the past four years, Girls Innovate! has been my personal passion project. I was interested in mobilizing resources that could support women who are mothers to travel greater distances towards leadership and innovation in society and help girls develop the capacity for same. I mentored a group of teen girls who helped organize Girls Innovate! events and workshops – all free and open to the public.

As I worked on this project, I started grasping that the problem consisted not only of external constraints but internal ones – the thoughts and beliefs that reside in our subconscious minds.

It is early January 2017, and my journey has taken me to a place where I am seeking for greater understanding of:

  • human consciousness and awareness of how our minds work, particularly at the subconscious level;
  • how to access the parts of our brain that can handle and process complexity, uncertainty and discomfort; and
  • how to help kids develop self-awareness, reflective thought, curiosity, creative courage and compassion.

Young Rebel Talent is a space I am developing – a studio of sorts – where adolescents can be exposed to experiences that help them develop the capacity for more creative output – not technical skills per se but creative imagining and risk-taking that come from within.
