Welcome

Hello! My name is Carlinda Lee!

I am curious and passionate about all things sales and marketing.

As an enthusiastic, driven business student, I am always open and ready for new experiences, opportunities and challenges.

I love learning, whether it be through mentorship programs, articles, videos, or through the posts of the many inspiring individuals on LinkedIn, and social media. Additionally, I enjoy attending events, workshops, and conferences as well, where I am immersed in a space with driven individuals from diverse backgrounds while learning and challenged at case competitions that push me.

Thankful for all the mentors and coaches I've had throughout my journey, I love giving back to the community as well, whether that be serving as a Mentor of 2 years for the BASS Mentorship Program, a Case Competition Judge for Enactus or a Panelist for BlackBerry's virtual intern orientation and Student Marketing Association's SMACKDOWN Case Competition.

In my free time, I love exploring aesthetic restaurants and the city on a nice stroll, with great friends and nice views. Of course, I also enjoy relaxing by listening to music from different cultures including American, Canadian, British, Korean and Hong Kong, and watching documentaries/videos like Betting on Zero, videos from CNBC and CBC Marketplace.
