Dian Yu was born in Beijing, China. 2010 was the year when she first came to Canada (Stanstead, QC) as a high school student. In 2013, she moved to Toronto, where she now calls her second home. She graduated from the University of Toronto in 2017 with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree and will attend the University of Sydney next spring to study laws (JD 2021).
Dian has worked with several social enterprises and NGOs in the past, including Centre for Social Innovation (Toronto) and Lifewire Foundation Limited (Hong Kong).
Dian believes that real changes take time and positive differences can be achieved through civically engaged and socially responsible citizens, who dedicate time and energy to causes that matter.
