Meet Yahan Zhang, MIM '16

My Background

I was born in a great city called Nanchang. It’s the capital of Jiangxi Province in southeastern China. I came to the United State since 2008 that was the first time I met my host family in Boise, Idaho. In 2009, I was enrolled in Portland State University as an international student. I graduated from PSU in Art Practice degree. After the intensive Foundation lab, I joined PSU’s MIM Program in the fall 2015.

My Experience at Portland State University

I work at the PSU International Admission Office as a student social media coordinator. My favorite thing about PSU is the people. At Portland State, I get to meet students from all 50 US States and nearly 100 foreign countries. There’s also plenty adventure to be found beyond campus. PSU offers more than 200 study abroad opportunities, I took the opportunity to study Printmaking in Guanajuato in summer 2013.

My Future Goals

Now I’m honored to be the student ambassador and Vice president of Public Relations for the 2016 MIM class. My goal for the next 11 months is to do my best to serve our communities and successfully finish my master program in good grades.
