Emily Taylor

Emily Taylor is an engaged Co-op student who studies both Communication and Print and Digital Publishing.

“The Publishing minor is a unique combination of highly practical skills related to communicating meaning (graphic design, writing, social media, business plans) and a forward-thinking analysis of the current publishing landscape. This program is progressive, honest and creative in its capacity to look at the state of the publishing industry and see opportunity for improvement, development and evolution, rather than merely crying 'crisis'.”

Throughout her 4 years at SFU, she has been involved both on-campus and off-campus. As a Residence Orientation Leader, she embraced the passion, motivation, and excitement that is characteristic of students who are eager to welcome new students. Through Co-operative Education, Emily has had the opportunity to participate in five internships, working at companies such as Comox Valley Art Gallery, Mitacs, and Tradeable Bits. The latter has now turned into a post-graduation career opportunity.
