Jazz Tan is the CEO and founder of YouthsToday.com. Award winner of the Top 40 under 40 Prestige magazine and the Best ICT in ASEAN region. Founder of the largest youth online engagement platform in Malaysia, Jazz is a social entrepreneur, strategist and an inspirational figure to set course and help young people to thrive at their fullest potential.
She knows full well what this sort of lifestyle can do to the lives of the youth. Her own father was a victim of unhealthy activities – engaging in gangsterism and drugs – and passed away 11 years ago when Tan was just 14 years old. Since then, she’s made it her personal mission to move young people off the streets. She founded YouthsToday, an online platform for projects spearheaded by youths, for that express purpose in 2013.
