    Born in Nanjing, China, Zhengyuan Ma (Zheng) moved to Honolulu, HI when he was six years old. There, he came into contact with many diverse cultures and became interested in cross-cultural interactions, which encouraged him to maintain a keen interest in events in China, his country of origin. Zheng attended the high school of U.S. President Barack Obama and is the State of Hawai'i record holder for several U.S. mathematics competitions, including the USA Mathematical Olympiad. His passion for mathematics has developed into interests in various topics, including history, philosophy, religion, computer science, and economics, and he loves learning new ideas and reading as much as he can. This past year, he finished a B.S. in Mathematical and Computational Science at Stanford University. At Stanford, he was the president of O-Tone, an East Asian-focused a cappella group, and was a member of the Forum for American-Chinese Exchange at Stanford (FACES) and the Asia-Pacific Student Entrepreneurship Society (ASES). He also studied abroad in Kyoto, Japan, which was an extremely formative experience for him. In his spare time, he enjoys visiting historical sites, exploring cities and nature, and reading. From his current academic work in economics and data science, he hopes to be a professor or work in financial services, and is intending to study at Yenching under the Economics and Management track.
