Lisa Wong is currently a fourth year student at the University of Student pursuing her Honours Bachelors of Science specializing in Mental Health Psychology. Last year she took time out of her student life to start up a small marketing – based company for makeup artists.
It is from this experience, she envisions herself scaling her passion for marketing and creativity to open up her own innovative marketing and communications firm in the future.
Lisa loves being creative, meeting new people and exploring new worlds and different cultures and hopes to one day find an opportunity that will allow her to follow her dream.
Lisa has always been a huge supporter of volunteer and non-profit causes in her community. In the past, she’s volunteered for Lawyers Feed The Homeless, an event hosted by The Osgoode Law Society opening their doors on Christmas Day to feed those less fortunate in the downtown core.
She also has been instrumental in her participation with Canadian Cancer Society and growing awareness of cancer prevention in the Toronto Chinese community.
Children have always been a paramount importance to Lisa and she hopes to continue establishing a growing presence in promoting positive self-esteem and self-confidence among youth. Lisa’s philosophy in the power of positivity and giving back has created a vision of hers that one day she’ll be able to create her own non-profit foundation to stop bullying amongst children and encourage acceptance of others.
Lisa loves to stay active by playing sports, particularly volleyball and soccer and is an avid cross- country skier and hiker. She enjoys spending time with family and friends trying new restaurants and learning different languages. Her personal motto, “you’re only as big as your dreams” reminds Lisa to dream big and work hard and anything is truly possible.
