Natalie Chen, Co-Founder

Hi everyone! My name is Natalie Chen and I am a fourth-year student at McMaster University in the Bachelors of Health Sciences Program. I originally founded World in Focus with Grace Wu in 2016, and seeing the organization grow to impact hundreds of youth has been both humbling and inspiring. I have served as the President of WiF for its first two years and have spearheaded many of the events we currently organize - including our international writing and art contest, In Focus! After graduating high school and passing the baton, I now serve as a mentor to many of the talented individuals on WiF's executive team and help oversee WiF's expansion. Stay tuned for exciting developments!

Caitlin Wong, President (2018-2019)

Hi there! My name is Caitlin Wong, and I’m a third-year student at Western University in the Management and Organizational Studies program. Since joining WiF in 2016, this organization has been such an inspiring and integral part of my personal growth and development. I’m incredibly proud to have led and witnessed many of the positive changes and impacts a group of passionate, hardworking youth can accomplish. Currently, I serve as a mentor alongside Natalie to spread WiF’s vision and empower more youth to shed light on the importance of vision care and community involvement. As such, we would like to invite you to be a part of our journey — we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the future!
