Helen Platform

A platform for collaborating on academic and career goals.

It’s a place where like-minded students and professionals can meet to collaborate on reaching their goals, whether they were educational goals, stuff like getting a scholarship, IELTS exam, university offers, or professional ones like getting jobs!

Helen equips people with tools to organise their endeavours and facilitate sharing knowledge with their community, while building up their skills simultaneously.

Vision for Helen:

Information on the internet is growing rapidly, flooding users with all sorts of content about their topics of interest, causing them confusion. The content might also be outdated or misleading. We may very well experience peer pressure that would prevent us from reaching our goal!

Students and new grads looking for jobs usually have an unclear career path, and this confusion causes a lack of self-motivation, especially with no support network to help through that!

We imagine a smart platform that contains many virtual shops. Each shop is a unit that serves a certain purpose to help the users reach their educational and professional goals. Are virtual shops are::

  1. Ask the community :
  2. The place where you can ask any educational or career-related question and get answers back from the right people!

  3. Event Shops:
  4. Here, Global Share Squads and the Helen community will be able to create events, development opportunities, webinars, games, hackathons, edit-a-thons and more for others to join! The event’s shop will facilitate a convenient way for community members to meet and thrive together!

  5. Collab-Shops:
  6. Any new community member can join or create a clan with a specific academic or career goal at the collab shop. Other community members can join the clan to collaborate on reaching the goal of the clan.

    This shop will help facilitate collaboration by presenting our community with innovative collaboration tools.

Technical Jargon:

Helen Keller, Her Story and The Project Namesake:

Helen Keller was an author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Although Helen is known in the world as a symbol of courage in the face of hardships, in her remarkable life, Ms Keller stood as a powerful example of how determination, hard work, and imagination empower us to overcome adversity. Through persistence and diligence, she grew into a respected, world-renowned activist who worked hard for improving the lives of others.

Her journey inspired us to name our first platform after her. We aspire to be a social enterprise that helps people overcome their hurdles to reach their academic and professional goals.
