Yingchen Zhao

GENERAL SECRETARY

gensec@gsa.unimelb.edu.au

Hi everyone, I’m Yingchen (she/her) and I’m running for the GSA Board!

As a current GSA Board member I have showcased not only my experience as a Commerce graduate and current Master of Information Systems student but also my experience in compliance of not-for-profit organisations as a partly-qualified Chartered Accountant.

Raised in Shanghai China, I’m dedicated to advocating for International and women students. I am grateful for my Chinese heritage, as well as a bilingual, passionate and responsible member of my local community in Melbourne. I am a NAATI accredited interpreter between Mandarin and English, and I participate in a diverse range of grad group activities to better serve the needs of the community.

I’m also someone who loves to give back to the community as evidenced in my roles as Activity Officer at the International Commerce Student Society (ICSS) and as a volunteer tutor at Oakleigh Chinese Senior Club.
If elected, I endeavour to uphold integrity, responsibility and transparency as a board member, and make strategic decisions that align with the best interest of all members of GSA.

Vote Together for a GSA focussed on Genuine representation, Sustainable
governance and an Accessible university experience.

Vote for Bringing Students Together!
