Drawing wisdom from nine years in the field, Norman’s tenacity and growth mindset transformed him into the determined and adaptable business person he is today.
Not only dedicated to his personal growth, but Norman also has a heart for empowering others. He has been a part of Youth Lens from its inception and took on the role of COO in June 2022, finding purpose in making a positive impact on young minds. Norman’s story is one of resilience, passion, and the unwavering commitment to inspire and uplift those around him.
