Jackie Han discovered origami at a very young age - only 6 years old! His passion for this art form has only grown since then. It’s amazing to see all of the things he can create by simply making a series of folds and creases in a single piece of paper.
He’s studied a variety of origami methods and models over the years, so much so that in addition to making things for himself, he also started teaching other people how to do it. He’s offered workshops at schools, libraries, community centres, and over the last year, he’s also offered lots of online sessions.
He even started Origami Canada, a youth-led nonprofit that shares origami teaching resources for kids, parents, and seniors.
Considering he’s currently in grade 12, you can probably understand why he’s been recognized for his many accomplishments and service to his community, including receiving the Ontario Volunteers Award and a Richmond Hill Arts Awards for Youth.
