Picture of Emily at Kitsilano Beach Park in Vancouver, BC.

We’re super stoked to have Emily join us at BYTE’s STEP student for the summer!

Emily, who’s studying Communications at Capilano University in Vancouver, will be focusing on BYTE’s marketing and communications strategies, as well as revamping our social media platforms to be, well, better. She was born in Iqaluit and spent her early childhood in Yellowknife before moving to Whitehorse (the true Northern experience!), where she’s lived since she was five. Emily most recently worked as a certified esthetician/makeup artist before transitioning back to school, where she just wrapped up her first year. She is passionate about empowering Yukon youth because, in her words: “I grew up here. I remember what was great about it and what it lacked. It is essential that young people know they are capable and have every option available to them, because they will shape our future.”

If you have communications or marketing inquiries or want to see something you’ve created shared on our social media, get in touch with Emily at emily@nullyukonyouth.com!
