Fiona Xin

Co-Head of Communications Department

My name is Fiona, and I’m from Vaughan, Canada. I’ve always been passionate about anything in the education field, so when I found the opportunity to join this amazing non-profit, it was a no brainer!

Fueled by self-isolation from choosing to do online school this year, I was ready to throw myself into a new community.

I originally joined the Internal Communications Team, and soon became the Co-Head of the Outreach Department. From the team, I’ve worked on a variety of tasks that span from helping with webinars with other nonprofits to hosting community nights to reinforce team bonding.

Throughout all of these tasks, I’ve come to work with such an awesome group of international people that I can’t have imagined I would have ever met otherwise. Small shoutout to Karen, Melinda, and Vicky, who are all 800+ kilometers away from here!

One of my aspirations is to become some form of a teacher when I grow up. Having done so already in a few other areas (piano, church, etc.), I found that what I was lacking was knowledge of how teaching institutions run behind the scenes.

Reach For The Stars is the perfect place to integrate yourself into a new community no matter what your skill set is.

3 Fun Facts:
1. I have an unusual obsession with my Duolingo streak
2. I’m an avid Potterhead (Ravenclaw all the way!)
3. I’ve been playing piano since I was 7 years old
