Tuhina Das

YEAR: 1st, Undergraduate
MAJOR: Undeclared/still exploring
SERVICE PASSIONS: International outreach, education, working with youth, any and all (:
HOBBIES: Traveling, learning languages, dancing, sports, music (k-pop!), reading, piano, violin, singing (not well), laughing, and pretty much anything adventurous
CONTACT: local@calrotaract.org or tdas@calrotaract.org
ABOUT ME: Hey everyone, I’m Tuhina and I’m so excited to be here! With a smile, open heart, and open mind, I want to continue helping others and making a difference through Rotaract/Local Committee. When I’m not volunteering, you can find me exploring the Berkeley area, watching a Lakers/soccer game, traveling, reading good books (ask me for recommendations!), or getting updated on the latest k-pop news. I’m a SoCal girl at heart, but am learning to love NorCal more and more each day. I’m always up for learning about new things and people, so please feel free to talk to me about anything at all 🙂 I can’t wait to meet you guys and have a blast this semester!

Steven Wong

MAJOR: Civil Engineering
SERVICE PASSIONS: Building/Hands-on Projects and Working with Children
HOBBIES: Running, Basketball, Swimming, All kinds of Arts and Crafts
CONTACT: local@calrotaract.org or swong@calrotaract.org
ABOUT ME: Hey! Although I was not in Interact in high school and was in Key Club (=O), I have just as much love for Rotaract as the rest of the officer team. I really enjoy spending time helping others in anyway I can. I have learned a lot from being in Rotaract so far and will not leave any time soon. And like many others I wish I had more time to do everything! When I am not completely bombarded by academics I like to swim, play basketball, run, and make all kinds of things from scratch. Even though I ran a marathon before and it sounds like I am really active, I am not. But healthy and active or not, I still love Rotaract!

ABOUT ME: Hi everyone! This is my fourth semester in Rotaract. I wasn’t in Interact in high school but I’m glad I’m in Rotaract now because it’s awesome! I’m from Southern California (woot woot) but I love it here in NorCal. I could not think of anywhere else I’d rather go to college what with the unique Berkeley atmosphere and SF right across the bay. My family is the most important thing to me and my friends are the greatest. I love In-N-Out so if you’re hungry, let’s go! I love all fellow Rotaractors so if I haven’t met you yet I hope you’ll introduce yourself!

ABOUT ME: Hello world! My name is Vicky and I love service! I was involved in Interact (District 5170) in high school, have been to RYLA, and am inspired to one day become a Rotarian!

CONTACT: international@calrotaract.org or aedmonds@calrotaract.org
ABOUT ME: Hey everyone! My name is Amy and I am so glad that I joined Rotaract last year! I was really impressed by how much of a difference Cal Rotaracters can make and by how everyone really makes you feel like family! (Haha especially those in your family) Rotaract is awesome because through it’s service events not only are you helping the world (locally, nationally, or globally), you get to have a lot of fun and meet a lot of cool people while doing so. Not only do you get to feel warm and fuzzy inside for helping others, but you get to feel warm and fuzzy inside for helping others with your friends! Basically, I think Rotaract is a really cool club. More about me? Well, I love keeping busy,exploring new places and foods, and just hanging out. Oh, and know that I have a major sweet tooth and am drawn to really bright colors. So if you see someone wearing a bright yellow something and eating a cookie as big as her face…that’s probably me!
