Happy Holidays from LYF to You

Happy Holidays!

Things to Come

TACL-LYF Scholarship
LYF Leadership has been working tirelessly to create the opportunity for our campers to express themselves and inspire the community around them. We’re proud to present the Future Leader Scholarship, to highlight 1-2 campers who embody the spirit of LYF and reflect the leadership qualities we teach at camp. Applications and more details will follow in January.

Introducing your new board!
LYF Board 2017

This year, our board of directors consists of a fresh and talented group of individuals. Everyone is ready to TACL the year with unique ideas to bring LYF above and beyond! But FIRST, some fun icebreakers —

Jessica Lee, President

Jessica lives by this Kristen Bell quote: “If I’m not between a 3 and a 7 on the emotional scale, I’m crying.” She has cried during almost every movie she’s ever seen.

Monica Chenglo, External Relations

Monica has inquisitive taste buds—in fact, she can tell the difference between tap versus bottled water when blindfolded. Try her. Plus, she loves lukewarm water with a side of lemon. So she’s all about the dihydrogen monoxide.

Emily Chou, Treasurer

Emily collects public library memberships for borrowing rights to their ebook systems. She has access to 6 ebook systems so far, and is planning to add Oakland next.

Albert Zhang, Secretary

Albert works remotely about 7 months of the year (e.g. 2 weeks in Japan) and lives in the warm tropical climate of Chicago, Illinois for the remainder.

George Sun, Vice President

George’s favorite recent backpacking memory was watching a wild fox grab a trout straight from an Alpine lake and bring it back to its den.

Shereen Lee, External Relations

Shereen is making a toy from scratch and has hopes to let people play with it soon.

Amber Huang, Program Director

Amber loves all of the crazy things her students say (i.e. “What has four whales but also fleas? George Washington!!!”)

Christopher Lee, Program Director

Chris was once bitten by a giant centipede in his sleep which resulted in him having to lug around a baseball-sized hand in Taiwan for a week.

Jonathan Chen, Creative Director

Jonathan sleeps an average of 5 hours each night.
