With over 20 years of experience under her belt as an educator, Sharmaine has moulded thousands of high-school and pre-university students to be the best version of themselves. Propelling many into top-tier universities globally, especially in the UK and Australia. Revered– both academically and holistically.
This dedicated educator is actively involved in various community projects which have planted multiple seeds of growth and transformation. Instrumental in chartering a new Rotary Club in Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya and as the Youth Director for the 2017/2018 term, Sharmaine takes her role as Rotarian Advisor to the Interact Club of La Salle PJ very seriously; instilling leadership skills and promoting a spirit of community among young adults.
Another notable achievement is her tireless efforts in the flagship project, “A Heart for A Seed”, which benefited more than 150 underprivileged from four different welfare centres. From early 2018, the project has been instrumental in cultivating continuous awareness in reaching out to the less fortunate.
Involved in organising the “Pirelli Rotary Golf Tournament”, a project to raise funds for charity and creating a self-sustainable system for the Orang Asli Village in Pulau Carey adds to her many selfless efforts in elevating the quality of life for many.
Sharmaine is also very passionate about empowering women be it single mothers or caregivers, advocating gender equality as well as improving child welfare services.
Resonating with the vision of Project W, Sharmaine believes empowering women creates symbiotic alliances between both genders; ultimately achieving true gender equality.
