“I started Emosyon Bibo® with a vision to contribute in building a more emotionally connected society, and that begins in the way we parent our children.”
Jackelyn Bugarin-Uy, RN
Founder & Owner, Emosyon Bibo®
Jackie’s life mission is to have a positive influence on the lives of others. She is a preschool teacher in Finland and a certified forest school practitioner and a registered nurse. She founded Emosyon Bibo in 2020 and has developed many socio-emotional learning tools for children since then. She has over 15 years of cross-cultural experience in the areas of healthcare and clinical research, church leadership, as well as education, and people development.
Jackie’s knowledge and ability are the results of years of education and experience. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Far Eastern University in Manila, Philippines (2007). Right after, she passed the Nurse Licensure Examination. She then continued to expand her professional career overseas with Raffles Medical Group (2007-2009) and the National University of Singapore (2009-2011). Afterward, she was called into the full-time ministry with the Central Christian Church of Singapore and Malaysia (2011-2020). During her tenure as a ministry leader and counselor, she has developed and conducted highly successful marriage and parenting workshops. She also served as a Volunteer English Teacher with HOPE worldwide Malaysia (2016-2020), a not-for-profit organization that aims to bring hope and change in the lives of the world’s vulnerable people. Her other experiences included conducting biblical counseling, pre-marital counseling, crisis counseling, and personal coaching to many individuals. Additionally, she holds a Certificate in Forest School Leadership from Forest Schools Education in the UK (2019) and a Certificate in Professional Teaching from AMA University in Manila (2019).
Having spent her last few years actively in advocating outdoor play and emotional intelligence to families, Jackie has developed a passion for early childhood education. In 2020, she got accepted to the revered Master of Arts degree program in Teacher Education at Tampere University in Finland. Through this, she plans to deepen and advance further her professional competencies and contribute to building better educational contexts for children and youth.
She enjoys listening to music, reading books, watching movies, traveling to different places, hanging out with friends, and helping the poor.
“The world has taught us what to feel and what not to feel. I see every emotion as valid and important. Emosyon Bibo® aims to educate about the value of emotions and their purpose in our lives.”
