What can you tell me about Rotaract and its role here on campus?
Basically, Rotaract is a community service club, but different from other community service clubs. We have students get involved directly in the community to do whatever is interesting to them. UR Rotaract helps you attach personal interests to community engagement. The ultimate goal is the same as the Rotary Club’s across the nation: service above self.
What is your favorite song right now?
‘Wonderwall” by Oasis.
If you could choose any kind of work, what would you do?
Traveling. I love traveling. I would really like to see the different parts of the world, volunteer there and live there for a couple months. I don’t just want to go on a beach vacation!
What is the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
Dove. It was actually really good. But that was when I was little, and I still feel bad about it.
What is your hometown?
I was born and raised in Beijing, China. I’ve been in the United States for three years.
If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Purple is my lucky color. It’s a very complicated color. It could be occasionally happy or it could be sad. It’s very complex.
