We expect children to learn all the time; encouraging them to explore new interests and pick up different skills. But along the way – as we grew and our responsibilities piled up – learning something new is no longer much of a priority. Some have of course retained that inquisitiveness and are always on a roll and on top of their game. They continue to learn, for fun or to improve themselves, or to have new career options. 

Join us on this #KeepCurious project. Share with us the things that you are learning or the new skills that you have acquired, and inspire us with your stories. It could also be a wonderful family activity, to learn something new together. E-mail us at star2@thestar.com.my or send us your social media links.
