Lexie (Yang) Tang, like many other international students, started her journey in Canada through her academic pursuit. After completing her BA from Beijing Normal University, she became a graduate student in the Department of Humanities with a research interest in cultural studies, fandom, and multiculturalism. Her MA thesis focused on the media fandom about time-travel romance writing and the social dynamics happening in Chinese cyberspace. Over the years, she has been developing her career in the field of higher education and education leadership. Shortly after completing her MA, she established her career in post-secondary admissions and enrollment management. In fall 2022, she will start off a new role in Institutional Research and Planning at British Columbia Institute of Technology.
