Facilitator: Ms. Due Quach, Calm Clarity Founder
Tuesdays, 8th period UNTIL 4 PM (PLEASE NOTE TIME)

The mission of Calm Clarity is to share insights on success by providing tools and training to cultivate the inner strength and presence of mind needed to pursue opportunities and create / open new doors. The founder of Calm Clarity, Due Quach, is a social entrepreneur dedicated to helping people overcome adversity, cultivate their potential and develop self-efficacy. Due and her family came to America as refugees. She grew up in a low- income area of Philadelphia, where she faced the typical challenges that children experience in the inner city. In addition, she began working at the age of 7 when her parents opened a take-out restaurant in a gang-ridden neighborhood. She often witnessed and helped her parents manage and report attempted burglaries, drug dealing and violent incidents. Due graduated at the top of her class at Central High School and graduated from Harvard University with honors. After building a career in management consulting, she earned an MBA at the Wharton School of Business and later expanded her management consulting experience to Asia. She then worked in private equity in Vietnam and in social impact investing in Singapore. While in Vietnam, she served on the board of the International School of Ho Chi Minh City, the premier private school in Vietnam. Calm Clarity is the result of decades of soul searching, reflection, and a self- driven quest to find a means for unlocking human potential in the face of adversity. Due has studied Tibetan Buddhist Meditation and Vipassana Meditation in Dharamsala, India, and completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Singapore.
