About Song Ting

Song Ting Shi
Newcomer Lead

Song Ting Shi is very excited to serve on the leadership team of the Toronto Youth Cabinet. As a first-generation immigrant, he understands the struggles of moving to a new land and adopting a new way of life. He wants to use his experiences to help others who are travelling the same path he travelled many years ago. He is also a Grade 11 IB Student at St. Robert CHS, participating in his school’s DECA and HOSA Chapters. He hopes that in the future, he can pursue a career in the life sciences. In his spare time, he likes to bike around the many parks and trails in his city. When the pandemic is over, Song Ting wants to travel the world, exploring new cultures and trying new foods. Song Ting loves to help others and he looks forward to working with everyone at the Toronto Youth Cabinet.
