Huo Yasi

Senior Associate Director

As the Senior Associate Director at IIE, Yasi is responsible for programmes and student clubs that enrich the student experience relating to Innovation & Entrepreneurship.

Previously, she dedicated a decade to the classroom, serving as a GCE-A Level General Paper lecturer and designing curricula for the humanities and the “Thinking Programme”. She deeply believes in the importance of exposure, exploration and reflections in learning, spending years establishing international private-public partnerships (academia, industry and government), such as global student exchange collaborations and co-organizing international youth summits with student leaders. In addition to the concepts of empowerment and emotional agility, she is particularly interested in how processes of learning and the transfer of learning lead to the development and retention of key skills and competencies.

Yasi read English Language and Literature in the National University of Singapore and holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Education with the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University. She subsequently obtained a Master of Education (International Education Policy) from Harvard University.

Outside of work, she commits her time to community-building and advocacy programmes with the underserved. She also has soft spots for baking treats, brewing soups and hiking!
