Victoria Yu is 23 years old from Los Angeles, CA in the United States. However, she grew up moving between multiples cities in the US and China and is currently based in Beijing, China.
As a global citizen, she has studied and worked in 5 countries and travelled extensively in Europe and the Asia-Pacific. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Comparative Literature and International Relations-History at Wellesley College and will be pursuing a Masters in Law and Diplomacy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University at the end of her Map Your Future Program field experience.
She has worked in the private and public sector spanning consulting, media, education, and NGOs. Victoria wants to learn how to effectively convey information and stories to increase global understanding and discourse and revamp public diplomacy. She is in the early phase of planning a media platform for global youth to share stories to future youth of the world to spread diverse and even contradicting viewpoints to prevent us from only existing in our echo chambers and bubbles.
In the future, she aims to work in a diplomatic capacity in the private or public sector to increase global understanding, cooperation, and collaboration.
Victoria Yu's mentor is Jay Harris.
