Zelin joined Chess in the Library in 2012 when Kevin Wu, the former CITL vice-president, suggested that he should apply to become a junior executive. Without giving much thought, Zelin agreed. Now,three years later, Zelin is not only the webmaster for CITL, but he was also the head volunteer of Bridlewood branch. He enjoys working with kids and playing chess with others. Ever since he joined CITL, his chess skills improved dramatically as he played in the CITL program with others (along with volunteering).
He is now a first-year at the university of Waterloo.
