Tom Nguyen

Marketing Committee Chair

Being a LEAPer was a highlight of my 2020 going through ups and downs with a great group of individuals. Not only have I been able to add an extra work experience to my resume, I've also been able to expand my network and strengthen multiple soft skills. I'm most grateful for the opportunity to gain valuable hard skills and explore my passion in Marketing in areas of media relations, blog & podcast production and digital marketing.

Chloe Wu

Marketing Advisor

LEAP's team of hardworking volunteers is so inspiring - their ambition is actually infectious. Working with people who are continuously striving to improve and build on their skills has been so motivating to me in my own journey. Getting to talk to some of the high school students we've helped out through our DMs has also been really gratifying and motivating when we get stumped. I hope LEAP continues its impact on high school and post-secondary students alike because I certainly learned alot :)

It's been a pleasure working with the creative team and supporting our organization through the creation of social media graphics, videos, and advertisements. Each and every internal LEAP member is always willing to do whatever they can to support you in your role, whether it be collecting data, critiquing your work, or even teaching you new skills (Adobe softwares in my case!). My team has been more than amazing to me this year transitioning me into my new position and I cannot be more grateful.
