Steric Tan (MIWU), 70 years old, is an advocate and firm believer in lifelong learning and helping others.

From a young age, Steric actively volunteers his time in doing meaningful community work by helping others. Unafraid of the unknown, Steric has self-taught himself a wide range of skills ranging from music, handicrafts to computer and digital knowledge. His colleagues and peers looked up to him for his resourcefulness and he enjoyed acquiring new knowledge at every step.

Since his retirement 10 years ago, it has only given him more time to continue picking up new skills and knowledge while committing his time to give back the community. Steric volunteers weekly to assist in digital clinics in helping active-agers catch up with technology and learn other skills, and at the same time manages a Whatsapp group to keep in touch with his peers by continuously sharing new information.

Steric shares a tip in empowering seniors: Instead of just helping to fix their tech issues, teach them how to use Google search. Demonstrate searching the issue and finding the solution. This empowers seniors to know how they can resolve issues by themselves if they encounter any.

This month, Steric would like to share a cool trick to “transport” yourself or your family/friends to anywhere you want! He has kindly recorded this tutorial at home, check it out!

There is a sample of his work!
