As a homeschooler who has just graduated from high school (2020), Magdalene spends most of her time exploring different types of art, studying psychology, and targeting her next goal in life. She has a heart for children and enjoys creating experiences and bonding with them through teaching them the joy of learning music. Engaging in deep conversations with those around her and learning more about them is something she cherishes.

Behind his occasionally stern demeanour, John is a dependable, meticulous individual who has been in the homeschool community for as long as he can remember. He was homeschooled all the way until his graduation from high school in 2018, and will be starting undergraduate studies at Singapore Management University’s School of Law in August 2021.
