Hello Tennessee TSA! My name is Xiyan Zhu and I am honored to serve as your 2020-2021 State Vice President. I am currently a senior at Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Nashville, Tennessee.
When I stumbled upon the STEM classroom in 6th grade, I had no idea how important TSA would be to me. Looking back now, going into that room was one of the best decisions I made. I fell in love with TSA, with its people, its opportunities, and its spirit. I am grateful for everything TSA has done for me, from helping me master hard skills through competitive events to building soft skills that include leadership, communication, and the lifelong friendships I have formed. TSA has helped me layout my path for the future - pursuing a double major in computer science and law. Outside of TSA, you can find me on the soccer field, at my dojo for Taekwondo, or in a club at MLK such as Science Olympiad.
Over this year, I would like to focus on building a name for TSA so that more people are aware of who we are and what we would like to achieve while also improving the Membership Committee. I am so excited for this year!
