Jody Chu

Programme Officer


Jody majored in early childhood education at university. During her studies, she served as a children’s choir instructor and piano instructor to connect her musical interests with teaching. After graduating, Jody naturally became a kindergarten teacher. Whether it was interacting and getting along with children or daily teaching, it brought her a lot of happiness and satisfaction. However, the excessive workload and pressure gradually started affecting her daily life and even caused physical and mental problems. Behind the energetic and positive image she displayed at work, there was only a sense of loss and fatigue. After much consideration, Jody decided to leave the early childhood education industry. She stepped out of her comfort zone to pursue a work-life balance and focus on herself.

After joining the Chickensoup Foundation, Jody had the opportunity to reach out to families with diverse needs. In every conversation, Jody found reflection and inspiration by understanding the different paths families had taken and the setbacks and difficulties they had encountered. At the same time, witnessing the positive changes in the mindset and lives of various families, especially among the adults, Jody gained a deep understanding of what “self-love” means: Before attending to the needs of others, you must first be aware of your own inner needs. Only by taking good care of yourself first can you have enough strength to take care of others. Jody hopes to continue connecting with more families to experience life and cultivate happiness.
