Born in Yunnan in southwestern China, Roy first discovered his passion for trade and finance cultivating tea leaves on the Tibetan plateau. He pursued secondary education through the International Baccalaureate in Calgary before enrolling at McGill University’s Faculty of Management in 2017. Coming into the role of Junior VP External, Roy hopes to be able to inspire more McGill students to realize and pursue their passions in the many fields of finance.
