My name is Tony, and I'm a rising junior majoring in math and classics. I'm from China. I enjoy meeting and talking to new people, and that is why I want to work for OISS. It is a place where people come together from all over the world and are excited about learning new cultures. OISS is always a comfortable place for me and hence I would love to offer help to whoever needs it. I am glad that I will be contributing to this year's orientation!
