Sebastien Chiu - Building Global Communities for Future Generations


Sebastien is a recent graduate holding a BFA in Film Production from the University Colorado Denver. Through volunteer work in the Star Wars community with the 501st Legion, he started his career in public relations and digital marketing which he has since held various positions in. 

This past March, his post-graduate opportunities were canceled as a result of the pandemic. That led him to launch Project Snapshot, an educational fellowship supporting 200 students across North America focused on connecting them to their future careers through mentorship and professional development as well as serving on the advisory board for We Are Next, the best open resource for students entering his industry. He plans to follow a career in advertising or publicity, using his unique background as a digital storyteller to continue building communities globally.
