Evelyn Pei Qi Ooi is a Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) Master’s degree candidate specializing in International Education Policy. Prior to starting her degree program in HGSE, she worked as a research analyst working alongside consultants to develop branding strategies for B2B companies in Singapore. She also worked in a public policy think tank in Malaysia where she prepared state developmental roadmaps for transport logistics and public utilities that plan to restore economic dynamism in the state. Pei Qi was born in Singapore but grew up in Malaysia where she enjoyed a relatively carefree childhood. She came to HGSE with the aim of deepening her understanding of economic development, education and social constructs that may hinder the advancement of individuals in society. Pei Qi is passionate about social inequality and aims to start her own organisation working with youth development one day. Outside of work and school, she enjoys watching music performances in a big concert hall or at a small jazz bar and having engaging conversations with friends.
