Ayy wassup, I’m Kevin, and this year’s EVP 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!

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 😉
