Justin Pan | Co-President

Junior, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science

Hi 帥哥美女! I am the 帥est 哥that you’ll ever meet. I’m currently a junior pursuing a double major in CS and EE. I’m also a member of Team DIVA in the Gemstone Honors Program. You can usually find me at Eppley lifting with my friends, in my room feeding my butt off on the rift, stuffing my face with delicious Asian food 24/7, or singing cheesy love songs in the shower to my poor roommates. As your co-president, I hope to bring to you many fun activities and create countless unforgettable memories! I look forward to welcoming everyone to my TASA fam :) Taiwan numba one!

Vincent Liu | Secretary

Sophomore, Government and Politics

Tbh Drake is my spirit animal. I’m kind of corny, but I’m passionate about what I do--and I’m passionate about TASA! Saying “hi” to me is usually the only way you’ll get a word out of me, so don’t be afraid to say hi. I like listening to a lot of music, playing ping-pong and basketball, writing, and just talking. My friends sometimes say I think too much, but I say there’s no such thing. Where would society (or TASA) be without thinkers?

Julia Maa | Public Relations

Junior, Public Health

Hey I'm a rising Junior at UMCP majoring in Public Health Science. Outside of school, I like to binge-watch Netflix, take long naps, consume an unhealthy amount of French fries and bubble tea, and go on late night drives blasting old songs that will make me cry. I also enjoy spending time with her TASA fam, but I like bullying my worst litto, Alberta.

Hannah Horng | Co-Historian

Junior, Bioengineering & Math

Hello! My name is Hannah and I'm a junior bioengineering/mathematics double major and co-historian for this school year with Grace. If you see someone squatting and holding a camera at events, it's probably me trying to get the best angle for TASA photos (it's hard being tall). You can find me sleeping just about anywhere on campus, and I look forward to meeting you all!

Sophomore, Computer Science

Hey I'm Tony! I'm currently TASA's Webmaster, but don't let that fool you. The most I know about computers is how to turn them on and off! I'm a pretty casual sports player and a competitve (not really) gamer. Catch me nowhere because I hate going anywhere except online! I play smash, league, overwatch, starcraft, and a few other games. Please be my friend.

Hi! I'm George and I'm currently a rising Sophomore majoring information systems with a minor in Spanish. I'm not actually good at Spanish so I'm not quite sure why I'm minoring in it, but I do hope to visit Spain one day (either just for travel or to study abroad) because it'd probably be pretty fun. I like playing games in my free time so if you ever want to play a game then don't be afraid to ask! I'm pretty bad at smash. I also like South Campus Diner. It's underrated.

Aileen Sun | Culture Chair

Junior, Criminology

Hello All! I'm Aileen and it's nice to meet you whether it is in the future or we've already met. I'm a criminology & criminal justice major. So this is the first year UMCP TASA has had the position of culture chair on board which makes me the first chair. I hope I'll do a relatively decent job and set a good precedent and standard for future culture chairs after me. Please don't be afraid to approach me about anything, I'm always willing to be a listening ear to anyone. One thing I think people should know about me is that I am a diehard Potterhead and I love the Harry Potter world so very much. I'm also a bit of a superhero geek so there.

I'm looking forward to a great year on TASA!
P.S. I’ve never been scuba diving

Julia Roh | Senior Advisor

Junior, Fire Protection Engineer

Hey, I'm Julia. Even though I magically happen to miss most of the board photos, I do exist. I am highly competitive and want to win at everything, even if you can't win (ex. puzzles). I'm a junior majoring in Fire Protection Engineering so, even though I'm the Senior Adviser, I'm not actually a senior (do I even advise?). Anywho, I'm TASA's "best dressed" so, at the very least you should come to TASA to look out for my killer outfits."
