LING YAN – REBOOT Technician
There are some pretty amazing people on our staff and because we do a lot of the 'behind the scenes' work, students don't always get to know who we actually are. Every month we'll feature a staff member (and occasionally Council member) so you can actually put a face to the name / event / project. This month, I invite you to meet Ling!
Ling is a super helpful guy around the office, always saying hello to you in the morning and fixing those pesky computer problems that you just can’t seem to figure out on your own. He came across the KSA REBOOT Technician position by pure chance and has been working on student’s electronics ever since. If you visited us at Welcome Week, he may have been the one to give you a brand new KSA REBOOT fidget spinner.
