I'm Alec Yu. My last name is an easy target for puns and I live in Vancouver, BC. I'm a third-year commerce student at Queen's University specializing in marketing and brand strategy.
My learning is currently focused on digital marketing and content creation/curation. I blog about startups, news, and my experiences as a student, and my post on Airbnb's proposed legalization in Vancouver was featured in Hostfully's publication!
This summer, I'm interned at the Rick Hansen Foundation as a Resource Development Assistant, exploring the world of biz dev from the non-profit perspective and the wonders of Salesforce. I was previously a summer student at Tangerine and had a lot of fun talking to strangers and handing out free money.
Vancouver is legalizing Airbnb's short-term rentals with a $49 annual license fee that could free up 1,000 long-term rental units for residents.

As a Tangerine summer student in 2016, I got paid to help clients, promote online banking and hand out free money!
I went to TechFest Vancouver 2017, a recruiting event hosted by Techvibes with 300+ job opportunities in tech from 13 companies in the city.
