Shuji Matsuoka was born in 1979 in a rural area known as Hyogo, Japan, where he spent his teenage years at. This period gave him a great inspiration to create new kinds of teaching materials without any digital devices and stationeries for Cambodian students studying in the rural area in 2009. Moreover, he realized that although many students study hard, many of them will end up working under the control of foreigners as cheap labor due to their educational quality. If they had the opportunity to understand fundamentally, their life would have become quite different. Fortunately, the terrible situation granted him various perspectives and made him find the solution by creating new teaching materials.

In his upcoming TEDx Talk, Mr. Shuji Matsuoka will show you the challenges which have been made to change the world dramatically by his ideas and passion which based on his vision to create new teaching materials. He believes his innovation is innovative, but it is not destructive, for it is a peaceful innovation.

He continued to build his career in Cambodia’s music industry and successfully launched 2 original albums. Nowadays, Sam is widely recognized as one of the youngest singer-songwriters and a full-time English teacher, but he has come this far, not to only come this far.
