“I look forward to a better tomorrow for these young, underprivileged, but very talented individuals who burn the midnight oil in all hopes to provide their families a better shot at life. Being an education ambassador is more than just providing all these tools and knowledge; it actually involves a lot of caring for others’ welfare with a strong faith and a positive outlook that someday, the little help we give through Zookal would make a lot of difference,” said Jon.
