  About Surrey Blogger Stevie Vu


Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.
-Bruce Lee


Business is my passion

The names Stevie and I love personal development and entrepreneurship. It`s what I’m passionate about and I`ve been working to help others develop their skills and themselves personally for the last few years.

 


A big passion project of mine that I`ve been putting my time into would be a business that’s all about bridging Gen Y youth with the business community. To bring together students our age and showcase our talent to the business community and prove that the generational stereotype about us is wrong. I’m also working with other organizations looking to help develop youth entrepreneurs within Surrey.

Previously I was the president of AIESEC Kwantlen, a chapter of AIESEC Canada, for 2 years where we provided other students with leadership development and international exchange opportunities to any of 108 countries. Examples of international exchange opportunities would be living in Italy and working for Microsoft, or volunteering in Africa with Not-for-profits to help develop communities or helping teach English to kids in Brazil in schools. That’s just a few opportunities out of the thousands available through AIESEC in pretty much any country you`ve ever wanted to go.

Other than entrepreneurship and youth development my interests tend to fall over the place. From competing and winning global business competitions in Singapore and Vancouver to traveling whenever I have the opportunity. I’ve been into break dancing ever since I was in high school and a hobbyist musician who makes piano songs for friends. Love reading books and a fan of trying new things, even if its a exploration into the paranormal through a ghost hunt !

Vision and Goal

We all want to leave a legacy behind us, to make a lasting impact. How I'm going to accomplish this is through creating a entrepreneurial community within Surrey. I'm going to start with the youth and build each piece of the community starting from there.
