Our Story.

IMG-3211 - Lina Lin_edited.jpg

GYEF was created during the summer of 2020 due to a lack of resources to explore the world of economics, finance, and business within my own high school at the time.


I started small with an Instagram account that was intended to educate students around the world about basic Microeconomics/Macroeconomics. Slowly, a month after GYEF's inception, I started reaching out to speakers to host events giving students a more direct way to interact with industry professionals.


From there, I recruited people to be on the team. We started to scale our operations more to include talks, conferences, competitions, college mentorship, and more to make a deep and lasting impact on the lives of high school and college students who aspire to be future changemakers, policymakers, economists, business professionals, education entrepreneurs, and more!

Fun Fact! We were originally called "International Economics (IE)" before we changed our name along the way
