Zhenye Pan

Undergraduate Intern

Zhenye Pan is a fourth-year Global Studies major at UCLA. He moved from Southern China at the age of 19 and started attending City College of San Francisco for two years. The culturally diverse environment of the ESL classes he took sparked his interest in globalization and international relations. His fondest memory at CC is being an ESL coach for adult English learners. At UCLA, he serves as Vice President of the United Nations Association campus chapter and Director of Professional Development at Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity. All these experiences have trained his communication and public speaking skills. Last summer, he studied abroad in Paris and traveled alone to fourteen countries. His current research focuses on the global tech industry and its impact on the notions of space and various levels of inequality in the 21st century. His interests include reading world news, political magazines, watching history and comedy shows, biking and photography. Ultimately, he hopes to obtain a Master’s degree in International Public Management/Policy, write books on policy issues, and work for the United Nations.
