President – Olivia Tang-Kong
Major: Media Studies and Economics
Experience: I am currently part of the UC Berkeley Office of the Dean of Students Marketing Team as a Publications Assistant. In the past, I have worked as a Communications Intern for Girls Leadership Institute, Historian for Cal Rotaract, and the Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Outreach Director of Human Powered Vehicle at UC Berkeley. Through these positions, I gained experience in social media marketing, both nonprofit and corporate branding, new member recruitment, corporate relations management, and management techniques.
Interests/Hobbies: On any given day, you’ll find me going on photography adventures in the city, drinking excessive amounts of milk tea, watching indie movies, library hopping, and/or crafting the perfect Spotify playlist.
Semester UCA Goals: I’m incredibly excited to be UCA’s president for the upcoming semester! I initially joined UCA due to my passion for the field of study, and through my work as Director of Strategic Consulting, I learned that this passion is something that I can easily take into the workforce. This semester, I’m focused on both expanding the club’s campus reach and creating a closer community within UCA. I want UCA to become a space where members can both pursue their career interests and develop professional skills while finding a strong community on campus.
