Meet your programme lead, Coco Kim-Corey
Coco has been working with The Mind Lab since it first started in 2013. She has held various roles including EdTech Educator, Postgraduate Marker, Next Gen Lead and now, her favourite role – Programme Lead for HeyFuture!
Coco loves introducing people to new ways of thinking, learning and doing things. Her background is in Design, 3D Modelling and Animation and she holds a Masters in Design, which focused on design thinking in education.
