Meet Kevin!


Name: Kevin (Cheng) Zhang

Major: Legal Studies

Country: Mianyang Sichuan, China

Favorite food: Everything when I am hungry

Favorite color: Blue and lots of other colors

Favorite place to travel: North Europe

The most interesting book you've read and why OR movie you have watched and why: Movie, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". I feel like this movie is talking about me. We have a lot of similarities and I believe I need to be braver to make my thoughts come true.

What do you like to do outside of class/study-time (weeknights or weekends)? Practicing my drumming and reading news, especially political and legal news. I work for Xinlang International as a freelance and I write commentaries about news happening in the United States.

Tell us about a positive experience you have had with a professor. Dr. Leesch is my professor and faculty advisor. She is so professional in all aspects and has served as a deputy state's attorney in the state of South Dakota. You may think she would be hard to reach but she is so close to her students. She is eager to answer my academic questions, helps me with my career plan, and gives me life advice. At the same time, her professional and organized working style generates an appropriate distance between a professor and a student. Also, her husband Dr. Bogner is another professor of mine who is full of wisdom. They do care about students and always work closely to help student. They are professors you dream of!

Clubs, groups, activities you participate/have participated in on campus: I am a member of Campus and Community Band and there is a rehearsal every Tuesday evening. I improve and learn in every rehearsal. A concert is usually held at the end of every semester and I feel so proud of myself after the concert. I am also a Peer Mentor and of course, International Ambassador.

Favorite CSC class or class project: Constitutional Law. Honestly, it is quite a difficult class but interesting. I have learned and "absorbed" the wisdoms of the framers of U.S. Constitution and the U.S. Supreme Court justices through the history of the cases. Moreover, the class helps me understand some hot news and current events related to Constitutional issues such as gun rights, health care, women's rights, etc.

Do you live on or off campus? I live in High Rise which is the highest building in Chadron. It it a harmonious community and I enjoy living there. I participate in the activities help periodically and Resident Advisors are helpful.

Favorite quote or saying: "Don't forget to be awesome!"

What excites you the most about being an International Ambassador? Contributing to CSC and promoting American western culture and Nebraska in Chine.

Do you have any passions or hobbies? I spend my free time analyzing news and doing research about it. For example, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice passed away recently and I am working on writing my commentary which will be posted by Xinlang International. I would like to see more Chinese citizens have better understanding of U.S. legal system, laws and politics.

Tell us a random fact about yourself. I would be so excited if you talked with me about news and make your commentary.

What do you miss the most about home? Food and friends. Attention Chinese students: learn how to cook Chinese food before you come.

What do you plan to do after you complete your degree? Go to law school and specialize international law. Hope to be a diplomat working for State Department or United Nations. My dream is to devout my efforts to building a peaceful relationship between the United States and China.
