GET TO KNOW Xin Zhang:
Q: Tell us about you and your role within the SU.
A: Hello! My name is Xin Zhang, and I am the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the 2019-2020 term. I am a student in the Bachelor of Video Game Design program at Trafalgar campus, and this will be my third year as a member on the Board of Directors. I started working with the SSU because I wanted to be a voice for students, and to make a positive impact on student life. I'm never the type to sit by and hope that someone else will get it done. I've always been the one to make the change and get it done. I saw this as my opportunity to help the student body and make a meaningful impact at Sheridan College. I love the student community here at both Sheridan College and the SSU, and I look forward to meeting new people each year and getting to work with an exceptional team of devoted individuals here at the SSU
Q: What are some of your goals for your role this year?
A: I intend to lead the board of directors with integrity and dedication. As I am the only returning board member from the previous term, I want to pass on as much knowledge and skills as possible so that the board and the SSU as a whole can flourish in the years to come. This coming term is anticipated to be a difficult one, but I hope I will be able to properly help guide the SSU in a positive direction that will benefit all of the SSU and the community here at Sheridan College.
Q: What program are you in?
A: I am in the Bachelor of Video Game Design program at Trafalgar Campus. I chose this program because I have a love for creative design and I see the video game industry as a place where I can excel and shine. I have plenty of ideas that I want to make a reality, and I believe that it is here at Sheridan College that I can make this dream come true!
Q: What are 3 things on your bucket list?
Be the creator/director of a ground-breaking video game franchise
Eat (a piece) of a giant squid
