Who Are Our YRE Students?


I'm a 20-year-old Sport Business undergrad student with a passion for digital media and interviewing. I will have my first opportunity to work with YRE in 2022 at the Collision Conference in Toronto. I've hosted and run digital media projects such as podcasts and web shows before, as well as helped prepare the Iris Griffith Nature Reserves for opening in the Sunshine Coast, BC. I'm unbelievably excited to connect these two passions.”
