Our Mission

To help teens find and fulfill their passions by gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. 

Our Story

Once upon a time, two sisters – Divya and Divina  – lived together in Hong Kong.

Divya (28) spent her days working with entrepreneurs and start ups, and learning all about the most innovative technologies and practises out there. She loved what she did, but she felt like she wanted to give back and share her learnings with people who would benefit from her contacts and experience.

 Meanwhile Divina (15) was an aspiring author and dedicated student at a British Secondary School. She enjoyed learning, but what she enjoyed even more was going to work with her sister and being exposed to the amazing like-minded community. And while she knew that her grades mattered, she realized that what mattered even more was personal growth – having a strong sense of self-awareness and being able to communicate her beliefs and ideas accordingly.  In other words, whilst academic intelligence was important – emotional intelligence was vital.

This is when Divya and Divina realized they were on to something, and that more youths needed to have the opportunities and exposure that Divina was getting. They wanted to help empower more young adults to understand and connect more deeply with themselves, and with the world around them.

And so Savvy Sapiens was born – with two hearts, two minds, and one truly exciting dream that we hope you will become a part of too!

The Platform

WORKSHOPS

We run Life Design Workshops where we focus on helping teens maximize their true potential by first identifying their personal strengths, values, and beliefs, and then designing a blueprint and roadmap to achieve their goals.

CONTENT

If you’re curious about what having a certain career and lifestyle is actually like (not just what it looks like from Netflix or Instagram) then our new podcast Humanity’s Best is for you! We’ll be interviewing successful professionals on the good, the bad, and everything they wish they knew when they were your age.

EXPERIENCES

There’s no better way to figure out what you like doing than doing work experience in the field itself. We can help facilitate the relationships you need to get the best exposure and make the right decisions.

Testimonials

Savvy Sapiens has given me the chance to truly think about what I want to do in life, and has really encouraged me to pursue my interests. It’s inspiring to see and hear the stories of successful adults, and I’m very thankful for the guidance that they have provided me. Savvy Sapiens is great for anyone regardless of their age, because it is a platform where EVERYONE can share their ideas.

Savvy Sapiens is a necessity to the current generation and the coming ones, especially in a world where most young people are exposed to a wide array of things and where we face different challenges that our parents just wouldn’t have come across. Savvy Sapiens will be able to provide a platform where we learn how to deal with our issues and grow as a community.
