What committees are you a part of and why did you join it?
I joined Local Committee last semester! I think Christine was the one who really got me into Local because she mentioned the events are close by and have a direct impact. Since then, Christine and Eric [the Local Committee chairs] have just been so nice and supportive! When we did Berkeley Project together, I got hurt, and both of them helped me. I remember Eric pulled out his huge first aid kit that he carries around in his backpack. I thought that was really nice of them! … This semester, I’m also trying to join Interact!
Do you have any advice for new members?
I’d say to come out to General Meetings! It’s a really nice way to talk to people and get to wind down after a long day of doing work. Sometimes there’s food too! Also, try to go out to social events! The Fire Trails social was fun. We did a lot of walking but I got to meet a lot of people. The family events are really fun too! One time, Andrew and Kylee made this really nice curry and salmon dinner for us. After, we sat in a circle and played games, and it was really, really fun!
What is something people don’t know about you?
I really like horror novels and manga, like Junji Ito. He has really freaky and crazy, but really good stories! .. If you ever want any really gory recommendations, I gotchu!
If you could go somewhere in the world, where would you go?
I would want to go back to my grandparents apartment in China, because I haven’t seen them in a while and want to see if they’re doing okay!
