Emily Mo

Marketing Coordinator

Emily is a grade 12 student in Ottawa. She enjoys visual arts and programming in her free time and hopes to study finance or computer science in the future. She first stumbled upon computer science accidentally in her second year of high school, when her guidance counsellor placed her in a coding course instead of the graphic design class she had chosen. She found the topic interesting enough on the first day to not drop it immediately and soon grew to love it. Ever since she's been expanding and applying her knowledge to a variety of clubs and initiatives, which led her to PTC.
