He is fascinated by the various experiences that international students have had and wants to help create a flourishing community for such a diverse group of people.

    Come Ask Me About: any one of my majors, being a peer tutor, classical music, Usdan breakfast, why Olin 3rd floor is the best study spot at Wesleyan, porridge cooking, recycling/reusing plastic bags

    Bio: Wendy is a junior double majoring in the College of Social Studies and Economics. She was born and raised in Beijing, China. Prior to coming to Wesleyan, she has not studied in the U.S., so she’d be happy to help anyone with transitioning to studying at Wes. Topics related to the Chinese economy have become her recent passion, and you're more than welcome to talk to her about Chinese society. Despite her insistence on being a morning person, she usually has to pull herself out of the bed by frequently going to Usdan for breakfast. She'd love to be your stroll buddy, and is always happy to grab a coffee or tea together.

    Languages Spoken: Greek, English

    Come Ask Me About: Anything related to music, from writing and composing music to different genres and sub-genres of music, any good philosophical topics/questions and Stoicism. 

    Bio: I grew up in Athens, Greece which I feel is a big part of who I am. Even though I'm not a music major I have taken more music classes than Psychology and Philosophy classes. I always love finding people who are passionate about music. During my free time I write and compose music, spend time with my friends, and love talking about any type of philosophical topics, life and the relationship between people.

    Bio: Veronica grew up in the US, Chile, Panama, and Germany. At Wesleyan, Veronica is a prospective Anthropology and Spanish double major.

    Languages spoken: English, Mandarin, and French

    Come ask me about: Restaurants and food recommendations in the Middletown area, cheesy British TV dramas, adjustments to new school curriculums, good study music, and anything else in between. 

    Bio: I grew up in Hong Kong, Thailand, England, Switzerland and most recently, Dubai. Despite being an American by nationality, I had never lived in the United States (in so far as being old enough to remember it) before coming to Wes, and I identify heavily with many of the components of culture shock that one can face when moving to a completely new country and a small community like Wesleyan. On campus, you can find me working in the Admissions Office, getting coffee anywhere that it is offered, and showing my friends photos of my cats.

    Come Ask Me About: Anything related to youth empowerment, technology, startups & entrepreneurship.

    Bio: I was born and bred in Singapore, and I am passionate about the Southeast Asian region and I'm interested in entrepreneurship as a means towards economic empowerment in the region. During my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, reading into and tinkering with new technologies. I hope to build a more connected international student body, and I believe that ISAB is the best way for me to advance this!

    Languages Spoken: Spanish and English

    Come ask me about: Anything dirt bikes (I love them I was just really tired in the picture), the Miami Heat, or for some pretty funny jokes.

    Bio: David, just like the delicious Usdan bananas, is a proud Guatemalan export. He is still undecided on his major but is a big fan of both government and hispanic literature. On campus you can usually find him stunned, staring at the gorgeous fall leaves he's seeing for the first time, playing pick up and intramural sports, or blasting Eladio Carrion on his way to class. David joined ISAB to ensure that his international peers have as good of an experience as he has had so far. Go Wes!

    Come Ask Me About: Film suggestions (especially if you like thrillers and romance), entrepreneurship, fitness, and... virtually anything about life. Down for a chat anytime.

    Bio: Born in the Philippines and raised in bustling Hong Kong, Zach plans to study economics and data science in hopes of addressing economic inequality in the East/Southeast Asia region. You can usually spot him eating at the terrace of Usdan (except when it's snowing...), skying shots in intramural soccer, playing pool anywhere there's a table, and occasionally doing his work in Olin. Through ISAB, he hopes to support and connect the international student community in any way he can.
