Let’s introduce the new team!!
MADAME PRESIDENT- DORIS XU
You ask me who I am,
So let’s play a little game.
I am Livia, a reigning Queen,
Cruel and ruthless I may have been.
I am Athena, goddess of wisdom,
I love books, politics, things that drive other people to utter boredom.
I am an ENFJ,
I seek to comfort and love night and day.
I am Sherlocked, a Doctor Who fanatic,
Not ashamed to admit, also a sick romantic.
I am talkative, crazy and loud,
One look at me and prepare to be wowed.
I am your Madame President,
And we shall together be magnificent.
VICE PRESIDENT OF EVENTS- SHINICHI NISAI
Hi, guys. I’m SHIN also known as… Darkness???
I’m Events Vice President of Chopsticks, you’ve probably seen me a lot on the Chopsticks Facebook page reminding you of our events, thanking you for coming to our events, etc.
So, a bit about myself. I’m 21 this year doing Adv. Science and majoring in Psychology (and hopefully honours and PhD and then… lecturer ._.) My hobbies include gaming (LoL, GW2 at the moment), watching movies, chatting online, meeting people and of course… Chopsticks!
I do know sometimes I don’t look like I seem welcoming to talk to, but trust me, I’m actually very friendly
I’m #awesome #YOLO #SWAG #hashtag! Heheh >:)
VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING- BRYAN ZHU
SECRETARY- FELICIA POH
TREASURER- SYDNEY TANG
ADMINISTRATION ASSISTANT- MACEY DUONG
I’m Macey, a first year Commerce /Arts student. I am completely honoured to be Chopsticks’ Admin Exec this year, and for getting the chance to work with so many amazing people as secretary to the Secretary! Although I’ve only been a part of Chopsticks for a short period of time, it has been an amazing way to begin my years at uni!
A bit about myself? Hmm… One thing that surprises/fascinates everyone the most is that I’m a ballroom dancer!
But anyways, hope to see you all at our events throughout the year, and don’t be afraid to say hi to me! Hope you guys enjoy Chopsticks as much as I do 😀
FINANCIAL ASSISTANT- SABRINA WANG
If you haven’t realised from the big font above, my name is Sabrina! But I’ll forgive you as I’m sure my even bigger picture captured all your attention. I get asked a lot about my nationality. I’m one of those in betweeners whose looks don’t belong to one nationality. My parents are actually from Guangzhou but I was born here. Yes, I am not 1/3 korean, 1/3 japanese and 1/3 taiwanese.
I’m an easy person to talk to ie. practically talk to me about any topic in any Chinese language or just the plain English. I love to play chess, draw, go shopping, read and talk about economics [but not politics let me make myself clear]. But my top 3 passions are: travelling, Asian dramas and eat. I love travelling to different places to understand different cultures. I believe that travelling doesn’t only have to be abroad but can be domestically and experience the wonders of Australia. Now if you were to ask me which dramas are good? I can go on and on and on about the 200+ Hong Kong, Mainland Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese dramas I’ve watched, but I’ll say: you only need to watch one…BU BU JING XIN 步步惊心!
I look forward to seeing you at our events!
EVENTS TEAM LEADER- KRISTEN WONG
My name is Kristen Wong- I’m a 2nd year student doing a Bachelor of Political, Economic and Social Sciences (just call it BPESS). I’m the events team leader at Chopsticks!
I genuinely can’t imagine any other society at university that is any friendlier, connected and devoted to its members and each other than Chopsticks- I see hugs, kisses, letters, poems and songs just struggling to contain the energy this group has and it’s something I’m very much glad to be part of.
I’m always willing to help, eat with or simply chill with other people. I’m often found just contemplating life at the International Student Lounge- or playing harmonica, pool, mah-jong, card games or even consuming the leftovers from events (spoils of war include sunflower seeds, coke, white rabbit candies). Feel free to chill with me whenever- I’m here all day!!
See you guys around!
EVENTS EXECUTIVE- YUH-LIN GAN
Call me Yuh-lin. Yep, Yuh-lin, just that simple, original and unique Chinese name my parents named me with. I dropped that once-thought-to-be-glamorous English name that I gave myself during my teenage years, which stuck for some time, but now, it’s all about the originality. This comes back to being in CHOPSTICKS, being around this bunch of peeps, who became (or will become) my FRIENDS and FAMILY, allowing me to be comfortable being that loud, straightforward one-of-a-kind girl I’ve always been 😉
So some trivia about myself. I love food. I think I’m fat (at least by Asian standards), but I still eat like there’s no tomorrow, because you only live once, #YOLO. Not gonna mention that someone nicknamed me YOLO, just so you don’t call me that, even though it sounds pretty cool. I hate random creases on my papers. Having lived with a clean freak of a mum for 18 years of my life, I suffer from a certain degree of OCD (you know I’m exaggerating, right?). And, I’m not sure whether I’m an introvert or an extrovert; is it possible to be half of each, or both?
Nevertheless, I’m super excited to be serving you as Events Executive this year and I’m looking forward very much to having an awesome year ahead with everyone of you!
EVENTS EXECUTIVE- ANDREW ZHANG
I’m Andrew, I’m studying economics in my second year and it’s also my second year as one of your friendly events execs 🙂
In short, I love music, basketball, playing games with friends, meeting new people and just having a good time.
So if you’re free, make sure to drop by our events and say hi! Look forward to it 🙂
EVENTS EXECUTIVE- ARTHUR TANG
Behold fellow Chopstickers,
I, Arthur, once the Legendary Leader and King of the Britons, shall descend from my noble ancestors and join the Chopsticks’ Executives of the Round Table. I, therefore, shall continue my mortal life in second year Advanced Science.
Sorcerous obstables, we might encounter, but thou shall fear not, for I shall call upon my noble knights(little chopsticks) unto my aid. May I bring forth prosperity and ecstasy upon the upcoming Chinese events while we cleave the heads of Saxons with Excalibur.
Now is the hour supporters of Chopsticks, go forth, and rebuild our homeland. Let them taste thine skills of yumcha, of mahjong, of big2, of mafia, of using chopsticks as though they hath never before. Harken to me my brothers and sisters, show them no mercy, for thy shall receive none.
May the light of the evening stars shines upon our paths. May the wisdom of the goddess guides my senior superiors.
I, hereby, bless ye in the name of Uther my father

I’m Nat, or the girl with the panda. Currently studying Software Engineering/ Project Management, and unlike other engineering students I only have 19 hours! (More time for Chopsticks!) I’m a part of the events team and am always down for a game whenever (since I seem to possess endless energy.) Although I may look Vietnamese without my glasses I’m definitely 100% Chinese. I also like green tea very much.
EVENTS EXECUTIVE- JESSICA ZHOU
I’m Jess and the most awesome member of Chopsticks’ events team! I’m a first year Education student, and I’m honored to be a part of the Chopsticks exec team in my first semester of university . Behind my bright personality and cool laugh, I’m an enthusiastic sports fanatic and a Titans fan.

GENERAL EXECUTIVE- RYAN ZHANG
King Ryan III was born on 1st January 1045 on top of the Great Mountain of K2 in a space capsule. Scientists believe that this space capsule was originated from the planet Kyskos, 5000 billion light years away from Earth. Eye witnesses from the nearby village of Alshur Duguraz have reported seeing bright auroras, shining angels and a fluffy ear unicorn supposedly raining down from heaven on the day of his birth. Professor John Howard from the University of Paelusland stated that from the Old Testament, King Ryan III’s ancestor King Ryan II supposedly torn down 500 kingdoms and 2000 counties in one fortnight. He believed that one day, King Ryan III would do the same and rule over Earth.
