Yu Fujii, MA (Japan)

Communications and Marketing Specialist

Yu is the Communications and Marketing Specialist at iLEAP where she manages communications including the iLEAP website, emails, and social media. She strongly believes in the heart and soul of the community and work of iLEAP.

Yu has spent the majority of her life moving between and living in different countries, with signficant experiences in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, and Australia. Though it was at times difficult to adjust to the consistently changing environments, she now knows how fortunate she was to have had those experiences. For this reason, her dream is that more young people can have opportunities to experience the world and unlock their full potential.

In addition to her role at iLEAP, she currently works as a digital marketing analyst full time. After finishing her BSc in Melbourne, she decided to return home to Japan, with hopes to reconnect with her roots. There, she completed her Masters degree in International Health at the University of Tokyo, in which she focused on the health literacy of students in Palestine.

She also loves to work with kids, and has previously worked in afterschool care centers, English schools, and at kids’ summer camps. She spends her off-time running, watching videos of seals, and baking too many cinnamon buns.
