Hey! I’m Alex. I’m currently building (and breaking) things in technology, investments, and education. While leading growth at a stealth social media startup, community building at an edtech nonprofit, and building next-gen marketing infrastructure with Bill, I enjoy being thoroughly humbled both in 18U hockey and on Lichess. At YEFA, I hope to expand youth entrepreneurship and give back.

Hello, my name is Frank Liu. I'm interested in business economics, finance, and equity investment analysis. I've won the AZ State Champion for Econ Challenge 3 times and made it into the national top 6 twice; I led the 2022 Global Champion team for the Wharton High School Investment Competition; and in 2023, I entered the Diamond Challenge Global Summit. With YEFA, I help connect students with professionals, hosting seminars where experts share valuable career advice. Beyond this, I have also founded the nonprofit iReach with almost 500 members. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, solving puzzles like Rubik's cubes, and playing chess.
I am an outgoing and bubbly person. I think that all of life follows patterns, and like to decode and solve complex problems. I love to play ice hockey and currently ranked 45th in the country. Creating solutions to problems I see on an everyday basis is something I enjoy as an aspiring entrepreneur. I believe that finance should be taught to all those aspiring to be successful.
I like playing tennis, reading fantasy, and sleeping.
