Before starting her work term with the University of Waterloo's Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) team, Amy Bee never expected her work to go viral.

Bee, a third-year Arts student, worked as a social media marketing associate for the communications, employer and digital engagement team (CEDE) in CEE in Spring 2021, exhibited strong social media savvy during her work term by creating an Instagram reel that resulted in record-breaking views. Bee's work helped to showcase students and employers behind the world’s largest co-op education program.
