I’m excited to tell you more about the skwealthacademy community that is helping me move forward in my vision of revolutionizing the education system to make critical thinking skills and application of knowledge in the real world, two aspects astonishingly absent in most traditional forums of schooling today, the backbone of any educational institution that wants to attract intellectually curious students. As someone that achieved national university entrance exam scores in the top 1% of the nation and that graduated from an ivy league university, I often incorrectly correlated these academic achievements to intelligence due to the naivete of youth.

However, the more I researched the history of academics, the more I learned about the focus of academics on tasks that have low correlation to intellectual development, such as rote memorization of facts and the administration of an exam based system that often tests for low intellectual abilities like superficial problem solving and the regurgitation of information without any demonstrated ability to understand complex concepts and the applicability of these concepts to improve one’s quality of life in the real world. In other words, most exam systems administered in classrooms all over the world fuel competition among students for high-grades, that even if achieved, predominantly fail to develop intellect and real-world skills.

For this reason, while attending the University of Pennsylvania, I often met students at fellow Ivy League schools that possessed near perfect GPAs but demonstrated a near complete absence of critical thinking skills, while I often met students with far lower GPAs that exhibited far greater intellect. Because our global academic system lauds students as brilliant without imparting any deep critical thinking skills to them, my mission at skwealthacademy is to correct this massive failure of the system, and one that I intend to correct. I have already completed writing materials for all 19 courses and nearly 80 accompanying exercises, appropriate for everyone between the ages of 6 and 106, and I am now in the process of proofing all materials and recording all materials in audio/visual format. After I launch skwealthacademy, it is my wish to provide some truly exciting additional opportunities for skwealthacademy members all around the world to connect with one another all and to perhaps even use these new networks to launch their own entrepreneurial pursuits, so stay tuned!

Together, let’s return the focus of academics on the development of critical thinking skills that translate to the real world and steer it away from the pursuit of meaningless high grades. In doing so, we will instill in our communities the indelible values of cooperation, camaraderie and goodwill among all of humanity.

I look forward to staying connected and have a blessed day!

Goals
2 of 1000 patrons
Our goal at SKWealthAcademy is to create a unique global community of at least 1,000 patrons across all regions of the world - Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Africa - that will help us finance the infrastructure necessary to release one course a month of our online SKWealthAcademy.

In addition, we wish to connect all our patrons in a supportive community in which we all encourage one another to seek pathways outside of the ordinary, pre-engineered academic and career-oriented pathways that most people take. We believe that true happiness can only be found by pursuing a journey unique to each individual and we wish to build a thriving online community of patrons that will be part of our online SKWealthAcademy website in which our patrons can bounce ideas off of one another to find inspiration and guidance in building a unique journey in life!
