Galia Shilo Sum

First Elected/Appointed: 2024

About: My dedication to education, combined with my experience in communication, make me enthusiastic about contributing to the council and the KAS community. Having two children at KAS, my interest in progressive education has become my focus. I developed a curriculum incorporating global best practices and this passion for education is what led us to enroll our children at KAS and to my decision to get involved as a council member. I am looking forward to contributing, including helping organise the School’s TEDx event, which I have previously done.  

With a background as a journalist and senior editor for major business newspapers, I bring experience in media and communication. After moving to London, I have also worked for a charity focused on eradicating extreme poverty in developing countries where I led their grants program. Today, I run a small content business that specialises in creative writing workshops and hosting TED style events. Leveraging my journalism skills, I also create engaging social media content that ignites children’s curiosity and critical thinking skills by making news accessible.
