Aziza Sheerin City Director at General || Singapore

Aziza believes education (when delivered well) is transformative, and holds the key to empowerment. She loves exploring better methods of teaching and learning, and is especially intrigued by initiatives that plug the gap between education and employment.

Aziza is currently the Director for Singapore at General Assembly, an educational institution that is building a community of individuals empowered to pursue work they love through education and opportunity in technology, design and business.

Prior to this, Aziza covered Emerging Markets Asia for a 110-year old, not-for-profit financial education firm. She worked on new market expansion and building partnerships with governments, international development organizations, and stakeholders invested in advancing education and economic growth in emerging Asian economies. Some of the initiatives she worked on include promoting responsible financial and business practices, corporate governance, SME development, financial literacy, and education to employability.
