On behalf of my team at the New Gen, I'm incredibly grateful to the Hon. Mary Ng for her continued support of our non profit's mission to uplift marginalized youth in the fields of art and STEM. The New Gen aims to continue to contribute to the national effort of creating safe and inclusive spaces for BIPOC youth.

"We continue our mission to shed light on personal finance, business finance, and entrepreneurship. In this episode, we're thrilled to spotlight Meilun Yu, the dynamic Founder & President of The New Gen. Dedicated to the cause of Immigrant and Indigenous youth in Canada, Meilun's initiative, "The New Gen", offers these young minds avenues to explore academic interests in arts and STEM. Alongside this, she also hosts "The Next Supernova" podcast, aiming to create a symbiotic relationship between different audiences and bridge the informational gap across continents."
