Felicia started her career as a tax consultant at Deloitte, and left the corporate world pricing financial instruments for Tier 1 investment banks in London and Singapore to join the coding education industry. Felicia is now one of the leading experts in the field of block-programming, a true inspiration! Felicia was inspired by her mother, an avid Singapore Ministry of Education math, design & technology teacher of 40 years. Felicia believes everyone can learn to code and that children should be exposed to computing at the earliest opportunity.
