Meet The Team

Disha Bisto

Founder & CEO

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Disha Bisto was born and raised in Mauritius. She moved to New Brunswick to actively engage in personal and professional growth. She obtained a BSc. in Chemical Engineering, during which she was involved in activities to promote environmental sustainability and inclusivity.

 

Disha is an optimist who is interested in multidisciplinary problem-solving and innovation. She enjoys a systematic approach of looking at challenges, to define sustainable solutions.

As an international student, she was exposed to the challenges that written and spoken communication barriers can create, especially in terms of academic and professional progress. During her academic journey, her friends and colleagues would frequently review each other’s written documents. This represented a safe community of caring, reliable and objective people who happily engaged in boosting the progress of others. Consequently, she decided to create this foundation in hopes to mirror this safe community, reachable across borders, where qualified volunteers can help individuals in their personal and professional journeys.

Jiwon Jeong is originally from Seoul, South Korea. She immigrated to Fredericton, New Brunswick in 2006. Her education background is Bachelor of Science, concentration in Parasitology & Marine Biology.

As a student, she had always wanted a peer-reviewing resource such as the Written Support Ecrit SB Foundation. With such a wish, she decided to join this organization to help make a global platform for students that is both accessible and dependable. She is very excited to help recruit volunteer reviewers and Board of Members, who can make dynamic impacts towards individuals in need for literacy help. As an once-ESL student and an avid volunteer, fostering the love for literacy has always been a personal journey for her, as well as spreading the awareness and compassion for successful learning.

She also loves bird watching. After one ornithology class in university, she was forever-hooked. She is also into painting (watercolour/acrylic), playing guitar, and reading while listening to some classical, because that’s the best way to de-stress !
