Meet the BC community:
Hi everyone, this is Yihan. I’m going to USC next year, and planning to major in Architecture. I came from China a couple years ago, so I can speak both English and Chinese. I’ve been living in Fountain Valley, CA, for the years I spent at Brethren. I’m totally a foodie, love all kinds of spicy food, and my hometown Chongqing is famous for Hot Pot. After reading tons of comic books during my childhood, I developed the ability to observe details of each art piece. Little sketches I did of my favorite comic characters always brought positive comments. As I stepped into middle school, my dad introduced me to a sketching class owned by his friend. My drawing skill improved rapidly in the sketching class. That’s how I became an art student. I’m also really active and athletic. I played four years of volleyball for Brethren and I love to play basketball during my free time. Community service is what makes my life meaningful, I have been a wildlife conservation volunteer in Kenya twice. My main job was to assist the wildlife conservationists to patrol the conservation area and prevent illegal grazing. Experience from wildlife conservation evokes my sense of sympathy and responsibility, and I will keep this path of supporting wildlife through my artistic skills.
