Wei Yang Yap has no interest in staying in one place. His goal after graduation is to work for an international corporation based in multiple countries so that he can travel the world and learn different cultures. Yap is on a track to graduate in August 2019 with bachelor’s degrees in business administration with a concentration in marketing and world languages with a concentration in Spanish.
Coming from a multicultural background, Yap fluently speaks mandarin, malay, and cantonese. He works as a teaching assistant, where he helps students to understand business statistics. He was also invited to be part of the Marketing Mentor Program. He was a member of the iBuddy program, which promotes diversity and acceptance of different cultures. Soon after joining, Yap was placed on the leadership board as the international outreach coordinator. He was also a student leader with INTO USF, where he promoted cultural exchange by interacting with students from various countries.
As a volunteer at TEDxUSF in the USF Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement, Yap evaluated speakers and gave constructive criticism. He has participated with other committee members in making plans to draw more attendees to the events. All this exposure to various cultures is part of his path to further his future career as a global marketer.
