Director of Member Relations:

Nuan Zhang

Coming from Beijing, China and having spent two years in the USA, I am exposed to different cultures and therefore value diversity as an important factor in my life. As the Director of Member Relations, I will serve as a liaison between members and the executive board to ensure that all voices are heard and valued. I would also like to facilitate a more involving community by encouraging everyone to step out of their comfort zone while remaining who they are. Outside of school I love playing sports and talking with friends. Soccer is my favorite game to watch and a fun fact is that I learned German because of the German soccer team.

I am also a huge NFL fanatic and my ultimate goal is to work for an NFL team someday (but obviously I would not even consider the Bears…). I can’t wait to get to know you all this semester!

Other than that my hobbies change weekly, from carving wooden spoons to making my own tea. I am from a small city called Antigo in Northern Wisconsin, so I am very excited to travel and study abroad in Vienna, Austria, so I can submerge myself in other cultures I wasn't exposed to growing up.
