2018 winner

Xiangyu (Anthony) Zhang

"When I was in high school, physics was always my favorite subject since it can explain almost everything in the nature world around us. Later, I got to know economics. It turns out that almost everything in our social life can be theorized or modeled in economics! And the uncertainty in economics makes it even more charming! Here at SFU, I studied as a master student in Economics. With brilliant and supportive professors as well as smart and diligent classmates, this economics MA program brought me a lot. And I am grateful to this wonderful experience!"
