Benedict Tang is a third-year student majoring in International Relations and minoring in Economics at the University of British Columbia. He was born and raised in Singapore before immigrating to Vancouver with his family in 2010. Benedict served in the Singapore Police Force during his time in the National Service.
He is interested in engaging in discussions with both peers and professionals within the community about global affairs and economics and how they affect both the Asia Pacific and Canada. As Director of Digital Communication and Marketing, Benedict hopes to broaden the reach of the Asia Pacific Youth Council to engage further conversation with youths in the community about Canada and the Asia Pacific. Given the prominence of social media, he aims to work closely with the communications team to develop informative graphics for Facebook and Instagram to promote Youth Council initiatives and events on social media.
