I’m the video editor for the club — look out some exciting new vids/shorts guys. I joined CSA cos I thought it would be a chill place to meet new buds while staying connected to Chinese culture. When I am not studying — I would be doing something football related (yea soccer), I’m a huge Liverpool/Real Madrid fan (f Barca), hiking, going on brief “adventures”, watching my fav tv shows, discussing political stuff and eating two-three dinners. So if you guys are down for any of those things hmu— also boba isn’t a big thing in asia and it is an American construct — just wanted to put it out there; but I’d still be down for coffee/boba :)

Major: Linguistics and Film

Hometown: San Francisco

What’s cookin good lookin? My name is Romi (the homie) and I am the video editor and resident white person of CSA! Just kidding… I don’t edit videos. I’m from San Francisco, California and I am half Chinese. I joined the fabulous Chinese Student Association the beginning of my freshman year because I felt joining CSA would be a great way to stay in touch with my Chinese culture away from home. Of course, it is so much more than that; it is a family and joining it has been one of the best decisions of my college career so far. When I’m not making promo vids for CSA, you can find me practicing wushu on the Cal wushu team or killing the guzheng game. I love to eat, watch movies, fail miserably at karaoke and so much more! If you ever wanna chill don’t hesitate to hmu! Ya girl got the boba hookups 😉
