About the Founder
Hi, I'm Drishti Goenka (she/her), founder at Journey Matters®. Born and raised in Hyderabad, I’m a trained mental health professional from NTU Singapore. I've been working in the field of mental health and education for 7 years now. Teaching Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills/like skills to children has always been the focus of my work. In 2020 I decided to set out on my own and establish Journey Matters. I have realised that the need for SEL products for teachers and parents is quite significant. If the pandemic has taught us something, it is that children need to be taught SEL skills such as emotional awareness, emotion management, relationship skills, and so on. I want to give educators and parents tools where they can initiate such conversations with children. I strongly believe that every child has a right to thrive in a safe and supportive environment.
To empower educators and parents with tools to nurture resilient children*.
*A resilient child is someone who (1) develops healthy relationships (2) is self-aware (3) is able to manage their emotions (4) takes initiative (5) looks at failure as a learning opportunity (6) has a "can do" outlook.
