Back to Who We are

Biography of Karen Kwan

Hi there! I am a born and bred Hong Konger who has always enjoyed being with children. My love for young children led me to study Early Childhood Development, obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Texas, USA. My passion for children motivated me to study Social Work at Columbia University in New York where I earned my master’s degree in Social Work; a broadened view of the world; and an experience of a lifetime!

After graduating I came full circle back to Hong Kong to work as a social worker. It is such a privilege working with families and children from all walks of life. My learning journey has been amazing. I can be who I am today because I am blessed to have parents who provided me with a quality education, and the right to choose my passion. My education from the East and the West has built a solid foundation that allows me to pursue my dreams and I want to pass on this blessing to our children at FJA.

My belief in the importance of education led me to Fairchild Junior Academy. Every child is unique, and I believe in the importance of a child-centered education. I am thrilled to be part of the FJA team, a group of visionaries who strive for a high standard education and the happiness for our children!
