Vivian Xiao co-chair

PRODUCT DESIGN CLASS OF 2019


Hello, I'm Vivian and I'm excited to be co-chair for TCS this year! Although I grew up in Hong Kong, meeting and bonding with people in TCS has been one of the highlights of my Stanford experience. I love grabbing food with the TCS family, going to karaoke, and all of our cooking events! As financial officer last year, I really enjoyed planning for Night Market and seeing such a large scale event come together. I can't wait to make it even better this year! Aside from drinking lots of boba, I also enjoy sketching and painting, traveling, and exploring nature.

Andrea Lim co-chair

ENGLISH CLASS OF 2018


Hey guys, I'm this year's TCS Co-Chair with Vivian! I grew up in the Bay Area but developed a deep love for my Taiwanese heritage while visiting my grandparents in Taipei throughout my childhood ('heritage' meaning boba, red bean buns, roasted yams, etc.) I joined TCS as a junior and immediately loved how down-to-earth and friendly everyone was. My other interests include creative writing, modern German history and literature, photography, and hip hop dance!

Rosalie Chang night market chair

CLASS OF 2020


Aloha! I'm Rosalie - I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and I'm the Night Market Chair! I'm half-Taiwanese, spent a lot of time in Taiwan when I was younger (and still do during school breaks), and love Taiwanese food - I joined TCS because I wanted to make more friends that share a love for boba (haha). My favorite events from last year include TCS's Iron Chef Challenge (my group won with a matcha crepe cake + red bean cream), as well as the Night Market (it's an open-to-public event with lots of food vendors and performances). Aside from school I love poetry, jazz music, food blogs, eating, and meeting new people. And as you can see from my picture, my favorite dessert is ice cream :)

Sarina Wu night market chair

CLASS OF 2020


Hey y'all, I'm Sarina. I joined TCS to stay in touch with Taiwanese culture (lured in by the pineapple bread) and stayed for the food, friends, and memories! My favorite events in TCS were grabbing meals together, boba runs, and of course Night Market! I enjoy tea (also the boba kind), food in general, bouldering, and video games.

Hillary Hermawan culture + social chair

SYMBOLIC SYSTEMS CLASS OF 2019


Hi, I’m Hillary! I joined TCS because I’m half-Taiwanese and wanted to explore this part of my identity, and I stayed because I found a community where I felt like I belonged. This year I’m the Culture and Social Chair which means I’ll be in charge of not only organizing events highlighting aspects of Taiwanese culture but also of helping to foster an inclusive and welcoming TCS community. I’m really excited to pilot several new programs this year, such as Taiwanese Movie Nights and the TCS SibFam. I love art of all forms, from music to design to poetry; green tea; walking; languages; exploring new places; udon, warabi mochi, and tteokbokki; and meeting new people and making new friends!

James Li secretary

COMPUTER SCIENCE CLASS OF 2019


Hi everyone! I'm James Li, and I'll be the person who records notes and other important things so everyone will be up-to-date! I grew up in Minnesota, but both of my parents are from Taiwan. I joined TCS as a sophomore and it became a really great part of my social experience here at Stanford, so I hope that it will be just as good as an experience for everyone new! I love piano, video and board games, and robotics!
