Last but not least, the last #mcm of the year is our President, Edwin Qian!
Edwin or “Ed” as we call him, is a senior business major and a Pi Kapp. Ed spent his childhood growing up in the North Dallas area AND abroad in Shanghai, China!
When we say he’s been with IFC for what seems like forever, we mean it! Ed joined IFC his sophomore year with a cabinet position. It was about this time last year when he was elected to become IFC President. An interesting fact about his presidency is that he is the first non-white student in school history, as well as the first person from his chapter to be elected IFC President. How cool!
When asked why he wanted to become IFC President, he told us that it was “a challenge and an opportunity” he could not pass on. Edwin was ready for it too! He wanted to make an impact on campus, but he said he also learned so much about this school and about himself while making many new friendships with this job. “Its one of those things you will remember for the rest of your life” Ed adds.
Under Ed’s leadership, the IFC community set new records in everything it has ever accomplished! In his own words: “it has been an incredible ride and I am so proud of the transformation the council and the Greek community have undergone in the last 3 years”. Ed wants to give his most sincere gratitude to everyone who has been a part of his journey here at UT.
Ed will finish his term at the end of this year. He plans to graduate in May 2015 and work at a consulting firm in Dallas; that is of course after he spends his summer doing what he loves the best—traveling all over the globe!
