I always listen to music, whether I’m walking to class or studying for an exam. In my free time, I enjoy ballroom dancing, drawing, reading, watching Korean dramas and humming to music.

sp14_Jeff

Events Intern: Jeff Wang

Major: Business and Economics
Year: Freshman
Hometown: Shandong

Hello! Pleasure to meet you (firm handshake); you can call me Jeff. As evident by my extreme lack of knowledge of anything California related, I was born and raised in NY and lived the halal and bagel life before I came to Berkeley. I love playing guitar and singing with a voice almost reminiscent of a whale’s mating call with people. If you ever want to jam, I’m your man. Also, if you’re six foot two or shorter, I’d be more than happy to play basketball with you. Anyways, enough about me. I’d love to get know more about you! Let’s grab a drink at Cafe Strada sometime. Cheers!

Hiya. I’m a second year studying statistics. I was born in Guangzhou, China and moved to the U.S. when I was six. I love speaking Cantonese (although Mandarin is good too) and am obsessed with dramas and JJ Lin, a Singaporean singer. I’ve lived all across California, and love both Socal and Norcal. I joined CSA because it’s like a big family and it’s helped my transition into college. You should definitely come to our events if you’re just bored or want to meet new people.

Outreach Intern: Anna Dai Feng

Major: Business
Year: Freshman
Hometown: Shenzhen

Hey there! I’m Anna. I was born in Shen Zhen and raised in beautiful British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada). I speak English, Mandarin and an embarrassingly minimal amount of French as a Canadian. I’m just under 5’1, but I pack a lot of noise to make up for my lack in height. I love to sing and play guitar/piano, hit me up because I’m down to jam or harmonize 24/7! I also love dancing, eating and obsessing over cute animals.

sp14_Ryan

Historian: Ryan Liu

Major: Mechanical Engineering
Year: Sophomore
Hometown: Taipei

Hi! I was born and raised in Los Angeles and am currently enjoying a wonderful change of scenery here in Berkeley. As far as I know, I learned to speak Mandarin and English at the same time, although my Mandarin could certainly use more practice. (Maybe you can help?) In high school, I ran on the track team as a sprinter and hurdler, but I’m also a fan of many other sports. I recently picked up photography as a hobby, so I wanted to join CSA as a Historian. Now, I can connect more with my culture, make new friends, and pursue a hobby!

sp14_JennyChen

Judicial Chair: Jenny Chen

Major: Cognitive Science
Year: Senior
Hometown: Shanghai

I was the Internal Vice President of CSA last year, and this year I’m a judicial chair. I’ve been heavily involved in CSA for a while now and have found this experience to be incredibly rewarding. I have met a lot of great people by participating in organizing events, and can’t wait to meet more this semester! My hobbies include playing sports, watching good movies, and engaging in the occasional game of Tetris. I have a great appreciation for music, food, and literature. I speak Shanghainese fluently, and hope that one day I can put it to good use.
