Hello there! I’m currently a 4th year student enrolled in the School of the Environment. This is the second year that I’ve been a part of the UTERN team and its been nothing short of awesome! During my time here, I’ve had the opportunity to get involved, find my niche and support on-going efforts to facilitate the expansion of sustainability praxis and environmental awareness across campus. I am very excited to continue serving in my role as President and partnering with various clubs to build a more environmentally progressive U of T.

Project Manager – Yi Fan Yin-Cheng

Hiya! I’m a fourth year student double majoring in Equity Studies and Environmental Studies. I decided to get involved with UTERN because I want to support and help environmental initiatives on campus succeed. I’ve just spent the last two years living and working abroad, so I’m excited to be back and involved again! In my spare time, I like to climb, hike, go on walks with my partner, and have meaningful conversations with friends. Plus, I’m always on the hunt for good food at an affordable price. I look forward to helping you as the UTERN Projects Manager this year.
