fall15_ryan

Historian: Ryan Liu

Major: Mechanical Engineering
Year: Freshman
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!

Historian: Benny Chen

Major: Nutritional Science
Year: Junior
Hometown: Taishan

Yo! My name’s Benny. I was born in Taishan, China, but moved to San Francisco when I was 5 so I have been in the bay area for a long time. I am probably one of the dumbest if not dumbest person in CSA so if I ever give you studying advice, do not take it. Also I know I am a NutriSci major, but also never ask me anything about being healthy or nutrition in general because if you ask anyone, you will know that is a bad idea :D. However if you want to play basketball or computer games and stuff like that, hit me up or if you want someone to listen to you rant, talk, etc, I can be your ears all night. 😀

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.

Historian: Jay Fan

Hometown: Shanghai

Hey, do you like bikes and or cars? I love going fast and touching buses while I ride down Bancroft no hands on my sick whip. I was born in Shanghai and immigrated to the Bay Area when I was five. If you speak Shanghainese too, we should converse to keep the dialect alive because Shanghai kids these days don’t really speak it anymore. If you’re interested in things like playing violin, swimming, going out for boba and desserts, discussing philosophical ideas, going on adventures, enjoying scenery, and mobbin the streets, that’s cool – hit me up. Welcome to CSA!

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 😉
