President: Kevin Yang

Major: Molecular Environmental Biology
Year: Junior
Hometown: Walnut Creek, CA

Ayy wassup, I’m Kevin, and this year’s President for CSA! I’ve been part of CSA since my first semester, and it’s been one of my best decisions I’ve made at Cal. Not only have I thoroughly enjoyed my time contributing to the Chinese American community on campus, CSA has also been a wonderful social base for me ever since my smol freshman days. I can honestly say I’ve found my people on campus. Little bit about me: I’m Bay Area born and raised, but my parents are from Taiwan. Outside of CSA, you can find me playing badminton, catching the latest soccer match (my club is FC Bayern Munich, if you know you know), or eating too much at Taco Bell on Durant. I can’t wait to meet y’all!

As a foodie, I’m always down to explore good restaurants, so hit me up if you’re looking for a food buddy for Chinese/Japanese/Korean food/boba/desserts/etc.! Nice to meet you all!
