Anna Chung | student
My name is Anna Chung. I'm a mother of two young children, ages 3 & 8. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Simon Fraser University and I spent over a decade working for a number of Canadian financial institutions in a variety of roles including personal banking, investments and wealth management. At my most recent job, I was a Licensed Investment Representative of the 4th largest team at BMO Nesbitt Burns, working out of our main office in downtown Vancouver. In pursuit of a new direction in my career after 5 years with this team, I completed a number of courses that were interesting to me at Brainstation Vancouver, including User Experience (UX) Design, Product Management and Data Analytics.
Beyond work, my children are my greatest accomplishment. As I watch them grow up, I feel an ever-increasing passion to work with others to improve the world that we live in. It is my life’s mission to model the practices of continuous learning, self-improvement and having a growth mindset for my children.
The opportunity to collaborate with others over a number of projects and to learn & grow with others in the creation of transformational digital media projects was why I chose the MDM Program. I believe the MDM Program will equip me with the skills and capabilities to create digital media products and companies that lead positive change in our world. I intend to share my learnings with my children as they are increasingly engaged with digital media in their lives.
Upon graduation from the MDM Program, I will be looking to partner with like minded entrepreneurs to build companies that lead positive change in the world by maximizing on the potential of cutting edge technologies and ultra efficient systems and processes.
