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 strategy, with a passion for digital and communicating my ideas through writing.
I like to blog about startups, news, and my experiences as a student. 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. I was previously a summer student at Tangerine, and had a lot of fun talking to strangers and handing out free money.
I'm a big fan of the NBA, hip-hop music, entrepreneurship, eSports and Thai food. You can find me on Twitter!
