Lee came to the University of New Brunswick from rural Ontario because the Renaissance College program struck him as exciting and well-rounded. He felt supported and challenged at Renaissance College become involved in the university and the city.
His interest in philosophy led him to take a year to complete a BA in philosophy after RC. At that point, his UNB education allowed him to choose to do anything from pursuing a degree in engineering, to a masters in ethics. He decided to pursue the Masters of Arts in Applied Buisness Ethics which took him to Sweden and Norway on a full scholarship, where he studied with classmates from around the world and wrote on why technology development is better when it incorporates public consultation.
Lee’s search for socially meaningful work has continued through working as an activist, day labourer, non-profit researcher and stage manager at the Vancouver Olympics. Currently, Lee is pursuing a law degree at the University of Toronto.
