Who is ZOMILA?
ZOMILA is a team of young engineers, tackling the massive issue of guiding students in their after school careers
Provide students with access to the tools and information they need to unlock their full potential.
A world of democratised education; where opportunity is determined by choice and ability, not by circumstance.
We aim to create a single personalised platform that encompasses all of the student’s needs, in the form of resources and quizzes. Using the personalities of the students, we aim to create a customised user experience that puts the student first.
We started Zomila because we were lost. Though we were all studying engineering, we had numerous interests and were struggling to find our true passions – to discover our paths in life. It was a problem we’d all faced throughout our lives so we decided to try and solve it ourselves, noticing that the jump from high school to university or college or employment was where we could potentially make the biggest difference.
Meet the Team
Dominic Schorr put his studies in Mechatronics Engineering on hold to work on Zomila full-time. He was elected chairperson of the Undergraduate Faculty Council for the EBE faculty at the University of Cape Town during the FeesMustFall movement and assisted in resolving the stalemate between students and university management at the end of 2015. He holds the position of CEO at Zomila.
We’re not trying to change the game. We’re just trying to make sure that everyone is playing the same game on the same terms – we’re evening the playing field. We help students find and unlock their true potential.
