About Me

I’m a student interested accessible design and agricultural tech.

Currently studying Systems Design Engineering at Waterloo with a focus on economics and society. When I’m not knee deep in non-fiction, you can find me making short films or beekeeping! I can also be found participating in film festivals, feverishly spreadsheeting for event planning purposes, or learning a new programming language off of YouTube. Feel free to snoop around or reach out via ansonyu24@gmail.com.
