About Member

My name is Moto Wei, and I am currently in grade 11 studying the international baccalaureate at Toronto French School. I am able to speak 4 different languages: French, English, Chinese and Japanese.

I have managed a club which teaches young students the method of solving a Rubik’s cube. With the charity funds raised, the team was able to support SickKids. I am currently working on a way of teaching children in China how to speak English. I have also volunteered at the Don Valley West’s member of parliament, Rob Oliphant’s office. I have a strong will of starting my own company someday, and I want to be a successful business person like my father.

During the previous CYFA’s ceremonies, I was attending as an audience, and I was determined to stand on stage and express my ideas. After attending the second CYFA meetings, I believe I can utilize skills learnt and experiences accumulated through my journey to bring the organization to the next level.
