Hello everyone! My name is Jessica and I was born in Canada/raised in Washington. I joined TSA to make new friends, find my family at UW, and most importantly to spread Taiwanese culture. I love everything music-, book-, and food-related. Don't be shy! Come on by and chill with me :)

Hey guys! I'm Leena :D I was born and raised in Bellevue,WA. I love all thing's small and fluffy, but my favorites have to be bunnies and puppies. In my spare time I like to do crafts, so if you need a crafting buddy, hit me up! I joined TSA to learn more about Taiwanese culture and to build lasting friendships! ^.^
COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
I was born in New York and raised in Shanghai. I enjoy dancing, solving logic problems, doing puzzles and cooking/baking! My birthday wish is to walk home and find a Samoyed on my bed, because living in a studio is too lonely D:
BIOCHEMISTRY & CHEMISTRY
"Ni Hao Kai-Lan lol~~ I'm Alex aka. the TSA chopstick man cause you'll probably see me stick out in the crowd at every single TSA event this year.
I was born and raised in Taiwan and I came to the US as an exchange student in Arizona. I left AZ and came to UW because I was so done with the heat there until I realized that nothing could be worse than non-stop rain for a month haha. But the TSA family has continued to warm my heart just like the sun and I'm so glad that I chose to become a TSA officer <3"
I spend most of my free time in a coffee shop or in lab but I also like to go out and explore the city of Seattle for some cool photoshoot. Trying to figure out my life as a senior but also trying to live at the moment to have the full college experience package ;)
Hi! I'm Amber, and this is my second year at UW. I moved here from Canada in search of good friends and good food, and I think I might have hit the jackpot here in TSA. I can usually be found in the corner of the room, simultaneously laughing at nothing and everything . . .
This year, I'm working on TSA's marketing and cross-organization collabs, so if you're interested in working with us, feel free to reach out to me!
Born and raised in Taipei, I'm a food addict who loves art, design, fashion, and most importantly, DOGS. I might look scary but I'm super friendly, believe it or not. I hope to share the beauty and culture of Taiwan by joining this amazing community of TSA.
INFORMATICS & INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
Hi! I'm Xingyue. I was born in Sichuan, China and moved to Florida when I was 15. In TSA, I met so many beautiful individuals and together, we put on some of the best events (aka UW Night Market <3). It is absolutely exciting to be part of this funny and loving family, so come say hi!
Hii, I'm Andressa! I was born in Brazil and lived there for a few years before moving to Canada and finally here to Seattle. I love taking four hour naps, eating, watching Tasty videos, and playing racquet sports! I joined TSA to find a community I could connect with and to help spread Taiwanese culture by planning cool events. :)
Computer Science & Informatics
HIIII!!!! I'm Kelley, I was born in the states but i grew up in China! I used to be a dancer back in high school but I haven't danced every since and I don't think I can dance anymore. I joined TSA to meet more people and force myself to leave the apartment once in a while lol. My favorite TSA event is the night market<3

Knock knock. Who's there? Hu. Hu who? Me, Shannon Hu. My name sounds like the hoo hoo of an owl, but I am a human unfortunately. My parents are from Taiwan, but I was born in Washington. However, I have a lot of family in Taiwan so please feel free to ask me about Taiwanese culture! Some of my favorite things are cats, owls, plants, erasers, and coffee. I also enjoy hiking, cooking, and reading books.
I was born in beautiful San Jose, California. However, I grew up in Taiwan for 11 years, moved back to California for 2 years, and then finally made my way up to Washington. I love basketball, but I'll probably lose to you unless we are talking about NBA 2K lol. My favorite food is pasta and I like it way more than rice. I hope I don't get stoned for that. I also love all kinds of chicken, ALL KINDS!
Hi guys! I'm Tiffany and I grew up in Tainan, where all the best and real Taiwanese food is ;) I moved to Bellevue in freshman year of high school and have attended every UW Night Market since then. I joined TSA to make new friends and spread Taiwanese pride! I can't wait to be a part of many more events to come!
intended psychology & business
Hi!! I'm Victoria ^.^ I was born in New York, but moved to Sammamish in third grade. I love, and I mean LOVE, pandas. Their lives are so simple: eat, sleep, repeat. I strive to be that awesome. My hobbies consist of collecting panda stuffed animals and listening to JJ Lin (his voice though omg) and I joined TSA because I want to learn more about my Taiwanese roots while showing others that boba isn't the only thing Taiwan has to offer :P
Hello! I'm Angela and I grew up in the Seattle area. I love to travel, go on adventures, and spend time with friends!

Sup my dudes, howdy, it's Sam Chao here! All the officers are really noice and funky eh? I was born and raised in Taiwan, and later studied highschool in a land full of polar bears and maple syrup sandwiches- Vancouver, Canada. Hit me up to go to Vancouver together! I ski, pencil sketch, play ultimate frisbee, and badminton! Whether you are from Taiwan or not, you can always join TSA! Lastly, I am a kind person both inside and outside. I will be there for you ;)
Yo! My name is Jeremy Ku and I'm super Ku. 😉 I joined TSA because I grew up in Taiwan, and I want more people at UW to know about Taiwanese culture!

BIOCHEMISTRY & sPANISH
Hello!! My name is Megan and I was Seattle born, Taiwan and Seattle raised. Having two places I call home as well as identifying with two nationalities, sometimes it's difficult for me to find a happy medium. I joined TSA to connect with students of a shared culture and a similar background while promoting Taiwanese culture with events like the Night Market! I'm so happy to have made so many new friends through TSA and to have found my niche in such a large university :)
Hi friends! I'm Nicole and I'm from sunny sunny Sunnyvale, CA. My family owns a bubble tea place so I grew up on boba, and it's a miracle that I haven't gotten sick of it yet. My hobbies include drinking too much coffee and drawing when I'm supposed to be studying. I love Taiwan and I wish I could go back more often, but in the meantime I have TSA to fill in the void <3 Talk to me about memes.
Whatspoppinwhatsgucci! I'm Derek, nice to meet you! I took my first of life in Renton, WA. Joining TSA has been a heart warming, mouth smiling, eye opening, experience. This club has reached levels of 9000 and has evolved into the family and support I cherish dearly. When I'm not at Ode, I like to gig it, swim, take pics, watch dramas, and search for new aesthetics.
Heyo! Born in Canada and raised in the Greater Seattle area. I keep relapsing into bubble tea addiction, and stay up way too late. I dance, play guitar, and game in my free time. Find me listening to hip-hop or being a meme legend online. S/O to Kelvin for unleashing my love for TSA and my fellow officers in freshman year!
Hi! I'm Brad. I'm born and raised in Oakland, California and spent time in Shanghai when I was little. I joined TSA because I love film and editing and want to explore them as more than a hobby and because I love meeting new people. I also listen to tons of Taiwanese and Japanese music, so if you wanna talk about Jay Chou or Kenshi Yonezu or anyone else hmu :D! Looking forward to a great year with everyone.
Molecule, Cellular, Developmental Biology & Comparative Literature
Hello! I was born in Taipei but was raised up in North America. I am passionate about being who I am and embracing my roots. My cultural background defines me the most and having the opportunity to bond with a group of fascinating individuals through TSA has helped me understand myself even more. In my leisure, I can be found in a bookstore, tea shop, or a candle store.
Hi there! My name is Amy. I was raised in Taipei and grew up eating braised pork rice bowl, beef noodles, scallion pancakes, mochi shaved ice and car wheel cakes. I love watching Studio Ghibli films (Spirited Away #1)! I joined TSA hoping to find someone who will unconditionally do the above things with me in Seattle. Please be that someone. I love TSA!
Hi! I am Chang-Ling, or just call me Mick. I grew up in Taiwan and came to US after graduating from high school. I am so excited to be part of the TSA since I can learn more teamwork skills and make more new friends! I like to do photography and film-making. Although they cost a lot of time, I still enjoy doing them. Anyway, please join events of TSA because you will regret if you don't.

pre-engineering & art
Greetings! My name is Leon. My 1# hobby other than traveling is doing artsy fartsy things! I grew up in Beijing, but lived in many different places over the years. I eventually made it here to Seattle, a wonderful city. Even though throught my journey, Ive had to say some goodbyes I never knew were possible to say and missed some people I know I shouldnâ€™t miss, I have come to learn that home isn't where you are its who youâ€™re with. This year I joined TSA to find my home here at the UW, and contribute what I can to my new family. Work hard Play hard!

I'm Taiwanese and Indonesian (my dad is from Taiwan, and my mom is from Indonesia). My hobbies include reading, writing, makeup, and video games. Also, I recently picked up tennis this summer, so hmu if you wanna play!
Hello Hello! My name is Tyler and as an electrical engineering student, I surprisingly still have a lot of my hair (and still black!). Fun fact about me is that I'm really bad at English so if you find a grammur mistake, you now know why :). Hobbies include swimming, eating, and being swiped left for being 2 inches shy of 6ft. I think all the other officers are going to put there favorite bobba flavor so I will too: thai milk tea!
Hi! I moved to Seattle when I was in 7th grade from Taipei, Taiwan. One of the many reasons I joined TSA was to meet more people who connect with my culture and share similar background as me. Another reason was I wanted to have more people try Taiwanese snacks/drinks and fall in love with it like I did with bubble tea <3.
Hi there, I'm Anne! This is my third year in TSA (I'm old) and every year I am increasingly thankful to have a family of such passionate, dedicated and unique people.
