Khairool Adzelan
Ecosystem Strategist (Talent Development) Digital Village Unit, SMA

Khairool’s educational background is in Computer Science and Information Technology, however coming from a family of teachers, it’s no wonder that he is passionate about teaching and education. In 2017, he decided to resign from his position as a systems analyst in an MNC company to run STEM classes focusing on coding and computational thinking. He then moved on to work with Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) under the Digital Village Unit, where he, along with other colleagues, champions the talent development of both Startups as well as school STEM initiatives in Sarawak.
