August 2012 - The documentary about the FuJian trip is posted on YouTube and ICI’s first website is launched.
June - Founder, Kris Hsu, visited rural schools in Fujian, China and taught 120 students the primitive version of the ICI curriculum. He came to realize that students had confined views to their village, unqualified teachers, and scarce educational resources. Simply put, students could not display their creative potential due to the environment they were in. This trip was the catalyst to Inspire Creativity Inc.
September 2012 - Kris’s English teacher, Mrs. Jisun Gale, learns about ICI and becomes our first mentor. Her connections allowed us to start the donation project. The goal of this project is to fill a shipping container with learning materials to ship to Xiamen, China. She helped initiate a donation drive at school and urged members to do more with the team.
