Meet Our Team
MA Special Ed (US), BS Special Ed (US)
Founder, Inclusion Specialist, Special Educator
Eileen has always been passionate about Special Education. Interviewed by Huffington Post as a voice for Special Education, she brings her passion back to Penang, Malaysia.
Studying her Masters under longtime Special Ed inclusion researcher, Dr. Pam Hunt, and Integrated Play Group (IPG) creator Dr. Pamela Wolfberg, Eileen’s vision moved from “What’s the best way to teach?” to “What’s the best way to teach so that they will be part of the community and live independently?”
In 2015, she spent her summer volunteering at Social Thinking’s Summer Day Camp at their headquarters at Stevens Creek, CA and spent her weekends volunteering at DIR Floortime playgroups.
Prior to starting LemmeLearn in Penang, Eileen worked as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) at St Christopher’s International Primary School and later at Prospect Rainbow Center for Children with Special Needs. Eileen enjoys hiking, nerding out discussing new ideas and drinking LemmeDrink Kombucha!
On-site Coordinator and Inclusive Vocational Trainer
An introvert, foodie, regular Penang boy who at one point of his life was struck by curiosity in understanding human interactions, behaviours and emotions which led him to his interest in Psychology. Inspired by former teachers and his own mother whose heart was in the serving field, he is now seeking his passion in related fields with the objective of learning to care and impact the lives of others.
Although he is still gaining experience working with people with special needs, he is guided by a heart of empathy and compassion. He now actively picks up skills and knowledge at LemmeLearn which provides him these opportunities to learn and grow.
When not working, he enjoys playing football, listening to music and watching human-relationship inspired drama/movies.

Dipa started in the field of special education because of an interest in helping people, an experience that she did not expect she would find so much enjoyment in. She then pursued a Masters in Special and Inclusive Education and has since been preparing our students for inclusion in LemmeEat and Project LemmeStart work sessions. Dipa has a special eye to see and positively interpret students, helping the community see the best in them.
During her free time, she is always up for spontaneous road trips. She also enjoys playing the veena, a classical instrument - it is one of her escapes!
