Today I speak with two of the co-founders of Spokle Gia Kuek & Andrew Kendrick. Spokle empowers parents to support their childâ€™s speech therapy with home-based exercises.
Edelson Dell started as a track and field athlete in the early 2010s before transitioning to football. He played actively in the special needs football championship in 2014. He represented his state, Sabah, to play professionally in various national level matches across the country where his team often earned the top three spots including several victories. His incredible talent and efforts helped him become an exceptional player. He successfully made it to the national team and represented the country at regional and international level football championships in Taiwan, South Korea and Brazil. His remarkable feat in football has inspired many individuals with special needs especially those from his state, Sabah, and his former school, KVKEN, to participate in football and other sports tournaments. Due to this, many schools in the state have begun to invest more in sports for special needs students.
Congratulations to Edelson Dell Evaristus as the recipient of the SENIA World Changer Award November 2020!
