#LEAPSTORIES -MATT

對LEAP來說,老師的學習不會因為長大成人而停止,他們會用很積極的態度去面對人生不同的階段,從多元的經歷中學到寶貴的知識,我們很開心他們都很願意用開放的心態跟台灣學生一起分享他們成長的過程💕


我們今天要帶給大家Matt的創業故事!


#leapsotries No.4


去年Matt從牛津市來LEAP幫我們帶即興劇和批判性思考的工作坊。在那之後,Matt創立了一

家社會企業SociAbility,希望透過更便利的資訊來增加社會的包容性。SociAbility是能讓有無障礙空間需求族群,如身障人士、老年人、推嬰兒車的人可輕鬆查詢活動及店家的詳細環境資訊的手機app,幫助他們在進行社區探索及社交活動時能更舒適、有自信,更有方向。SociAbility將在2019年六月於牛津發表。


Matt在這個經歷中學到建立良好團隊和身邊充滿積極能量及支持的人的重要性。在追求改變的過程中,尤其是在充滿挑戰及敵意的環境下,擁有強烈的使命感和目的(purpose)是無價的。


如果你們對Matt的計畫有興趣,歡迎直接看(https://www.sociability.app/) ,也可看BBC新聞的訪問片段 (https://www.bbc.com/…/app-crowdsources-info-to-help-disable…)

我們得知Matt今年再次答應我們的邀請後超級開心!他打算再為LEAP打造一場有趣的即興劇工作坊,也會跟我們分享他精采的SociAbility創業旅程。


我們非常期待跟Matt見面!(照片截取自"Oxford Imps”臉書頁面)


Last year, Matt travelled from Oxford to the leap to teach improv theatre and critical thinking.


Since his last LEAP experience, Matt has founded SociAbility – a social enterprise that works to empower social inclusion through better access information. SociAbility is a mobile app that makes it easy to find detailed access information for social venues and shops, thereby empowering people with access needs (whether disabled, elderly or pushing a pram) to explore their community and socialise with greater confidence, purpose and ease.

SociAbility is launching in Oxford in June 2019! Throughout this journey, Matt has learnt the importance of building a strong team and surrounding yourself with positive spirits and supporters. Having a strong sense of mission and purpose are invaluable when seeking to make change, particularly in challenging and sometimes hostile environments!

This year, we are excited to welcome Matt again at the LEAP! He plans to host another awesome improv workshop for us, but also to share his exciting journey with SociAbility.


See you soon Matt!
