Vote for the next years Executive Board
Matthew Wong 16’
The things I envision in the capacity of this position is simple but I strive to make it meaningful: - empowerment and exploration of the potentials of the international students of this majestic institution - encouragement to international students to discover the possibilities and opportunities that are abound in this dynamic community - standing true and proud of the cultures, background and nations that we come from - re-appraising the expectations that we have as community of students and in the activities that we do - reevaluating our expectations we have about our roles vis-a-vis domestic (American) student - in light of above, making overtures to domestic student population and expecting them to do the same for us in order to create a meaningful relationship.

Angela An ’18
My name is Angela, and I am an international student from Beijing. I want to run for the position as vice president of ISLC board. I have been working as the Chairperson of Activities on board for my freshman year. I have created lots of events for international student this year in college. This job helped me getting a better understanding of college. By working with different offices in college, I got to know more people and learned how to communicate at work. I am confident in my skills of communication. I have been living in many countries in my life. By attending different schools in the world, I learned how to face various people from different culture. I can work with people from different backgrounds. If I can work as the vice president of L&C international community, I will do my best to fully meet my commitments about my position and make a successful International Fair.
Hello! I am Junnan Lyu and running for the Vice President. As the current chairperson of publicity in ISLC, I am responsible for publicizing the actions and events of international student government towards whole student body. Our international fair is stepping into another half-century. From the feedbacks of students, I wish to make some evolutionary changes for our International Fair in the following year. Through more diverse media of art, I wish to show audiences different culture from more perspectives instead of purely singing and dancing. I am also aiming to enhance the communication and interaction between international students and student government and seeking to motivate more American students to be a member of this multicultural society rather an outsider. After making these changes, I would love to hear feedback from everyone, which will benefit the following evolvement of ISLC.

I am committed to fostering a platform of efficient communications and exchange among international and American students.
