Enactus Regional Exposition 2017

Nicholas Yee

The 2017 Enactus Regional Exposition was the first competition I have attended outside of

Vancouver, and it was a unique learning experience that made me really appreciate how

Enactus, an organization I have been a part of since my first year at Sauder, has impacted

communities around the world. It was great networking with like-minded and impact-driven

students from various universities from BC and Alberta, as well as industry professionals who

were also Enactus alumni, to learn from each other. Through engaging in conversations about

social change in a broader community, I was able to gain insights on the different community

projects other schools are working on, which inspired me to bring back some interesting new

project ideas that have the potential to become the next project for Enactus UBC.

As one of the presenters for Enactus UBC’s Spend It Right project in the Capital One Financial

Education Challenge, not only did I gain public speaking and communication skills, but also an

opportunity to represent UBC on the regional stage and share with others how Spend It Right

is addressing issues that stem from a lack of financial literacy in our local community.

Furthermore, the feedback from judges after the competition was a great resource for me to

develop my presentation delivery for further case competitions and presentations in my

undergraduate degree.

It is through my participation in the Enactus Regional Exposition that I have enhanced my love for

the organization and its mission. Throughout the experience, I have witnessed the immense support

that our team members had for each other, and the effort that went into perfecting those

presentations. This experience has made me value the culture at Enactus UBC even more, and

was what drove me to continue my involvement with Enactus for many years to come.
