It’s been said that an Ashoka Fellow is statistically one in 10 million, a social entrepreneur consistently dedicating his or her time and effort to promoting systemic change around a problem they see in the world around them. 

It’s a towering description – and unsurprisingly fitting for the co-founder and CEO of Epic Collective, John-Son Oei.

Upon being confirmed as an Ashoka Fellow at the inaugural Changemaker Forum in Singapore on August 28, John-Son will be one of four social entrepreneurs selected from Singapore and Malaysia to join the prestigious fellowship that includes Nobel Prize Winners Mohammad Yunus and Kailash Satyarthi.

It was only last year that this trailblazing Generation T 2017 lister bagged the Muhammad Ali Humantarian Award for Dedication, alongside a slew of other prestigious international accolades.
