Meet the Leadership
Perry Ya is a Maryland native at NYU Stern studying Finance and Global Business with a minor in Social Entrepreneurship. He has been interested in entrepreneurship ever since he started (illegally) selling duct-tape wallets in his middle school hallway. While his days of being a duct-tape wallet tycoon are over, Perry hopes to find himself at the intersection of business and technology in the near future, either through his own startup or through venture capital.
When Perry isn't preoccupied with school or work, he enjoys longboarding through New York streets, playing the piano, taking photos, and skiing. One day, he hopes to be able to travel the world. Feel free to reach out to him for class recommendations, Instagram pages to follow, or anything in between.
Annette is currently a junior at NYU Stern studying Finance and Management. She hopes to make a difference in the world by combining her studies with her passion for positive creation. She would love to work in a firm that challenges the status quo, while producing as many successful reality TV shows as she can.
She loves using her position at EEG to bring in speakers that reflect the importance she places on unique business models, creative business to consumer relations, and standout social marketing (such as "By Chloe" and "Birchbox"). In her free time you can find her looking for obscure fruits to post on @Juicy_Jems, watching TISCH approved movies like "Ten Things I Hate About You", or roaming the city in search of Michelin Star restaurants she hopes to someday afford. Please feel free to reach out to her for coffee, she knows many "cute spots".

Geenie is currently a sophomore at NYU Stern studying Finance and Marketing. Her interest in entrepreneurship spawned from selling junk food from her locker in middle school while encouraging teachers to ban junk food on campus as a student council representative to keep her monopoly. She hopes to explore the creative side of business and to be exposed to people of different backgrounds and skill sets through EEG. Outside of school, Geenie enjoys eating Asian cuisine, online shopping, and watching Netflix.
Joanna is a sophomore at NYU Stern and wants to study Finance and Marketing with a minor in Graphic Design. She is interested to learn more about entrepreneurship and hopes to have a career that can combine her interests in marketing and design. Outside of school, Joanna enjoys painting, watching cartoons, and eating good food. She firmly believes that food tastes best when delivered straight to her dorm, so she spends a lot of time exploring delivery apps. Please feel free to reach out to her for any food or delivery app recommendations.
