My Story >

“A victim of bullying myself I never understood why me? It wasn’t till much later in my high school years did I only learn how to make friends. What changed? Did I change? Who knows."

Fernando Nazrid similar to many other children during his youth and had a tough time growing up. Making friends was tough and the more he tried the lonelier he became. Eventually, he became a victim of BULLYING. However, he overcame that trauma and has since been focused on introducing new technology and processes in the education sector for the past 8 years.

Today with his experience he has co-founded Lilo and Friends to share his story and help children grow happier.

“Once I was suffered from school refusal and society chose to label me. As a child, I felt lost, lonely and I did not know what to make of these emotions. It took a toll on me and my family."

Fast forward to today, being a psychologist helped me realise the importance of one's social emotional development. It plays a big part in our personal growth, impacts what we believe and the person we become.

Lilo and Friends is inspired by our own childhood experiences and our journeys as young adults. For many years we are expected to develop socially and emotionally without being guided. Now is the time for us to take charge of it. Without it, social and emotional problems will arise.”
