Jung (Zhengyuan) Fang is a junior in chemical engineering with a concentration in advanced analysis and a minor in geography. He joined the growing organization in the beginning of Fall 2011 because he loves serving underprivileged people with his social and engineering knowledge and skills. Growing up in a developing country, he gained a sense of why the poor struggle, what they need, and how engineering and technology can make a huge difference. Also, he believes that global perspectives and international studies are big parts of his life. He enjoys working and growing with a group of people who share similar interests and goals. Besides his work in EWB, Jung is the vice president of American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE-RHIT) and is very involved with Alpha Chi Sigma professional chemistry fraternity and Pi Kappa Alpha social fraternity. In his spare time, he loves playing classical and jazz piano, the ukulele, basketball, tennis, jogging or simply relaxing with a good book. Following graduation, he intends to pursue a master’s degree in chemical engineering.
Engineering Team Manager
Sanders Park is a sophomore in the Civil Engineering Department. He became a member of Engineers Without Borders because he wants to make a difference in the world, and EWB gives him the unique opportunity to use his engineering skills to help those in developing countries. He plans to bring his experience from EWB to his future plans of graduate studies in structural engineering and career with a small consulting engineering firm designing large-scale bridges. Sanders also enjoys participating in the steel bridge club, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the golf team. In his free time, he plays disc golf and intramural basketball, develops his piano and songwriting abilities, and goes backpacking. In addition to his passion for sustainability, wildlife protection, and traveling, he is quite fond of squirrels.
Fundraising Team Manager
Ally, a freshman civil engineering student, explains that her interest and involvement in Engineers Without Borders stems from a desire to help advance impoverished nations the correct way: through education, practical technical solutions, and long-term relationships. In her free time, she helps middle school students with algebra through the Rose-Hulman Homework Hotline, reads books about 1960’s submarines or building bridges, and takes naps. She also enjoys running through the beautiful Hawthorne Park or using Rose-Hulman’s fantastic aquatic facility, stating that she enjoys being active and exploring the world. She has yet to decide on a career field yet, but she is considering water resources and railroads. However, the possibilities of high school physics teacher and lawyer remain.
Marketing Team Manager
Amanda, a sophomore civil engineering major with an environmental engineering minor, joined EWB because she has a passion for helping the less fortunate. EWB is a great way for her to help people while applying the concepts she is learning in the classroom to real world engineering problems. She also loves reading, art (especially photography), and community service. When not studying or working, she can usually be found at some service event around Terre Haute. In the future, she hopes to use her engineering knowledge to build water filtration systems and provide clean water to those around the world who still don’t have access to clean water.
Hannah, a freshman biomedical engineering student, is a part of EWB because she has a passion for helping people, and wants to do what she can to make the world a better place. She can be seen around campus at giving tours, attending PanHellenic conference meetings on behalf of Delta Delta Delta, participating with the service committee for R.H.A., as well as participating in hall and campus events. When she is not in class or running around campus she enjoys traveling, spicy foods, hanging out with friends, reading, and generally not sleeping. After she finishes her schooling she plans to use her biomedical engineering degree to work in the field of child prosthetics.
