Ming Chan Zhang
2014-2015 Volunteer Coordinator
Ming Chan joined Chess in the Library after being encouraged to apply for a position as Junior Executive by Mohit Verma, the current President, around October 2013. Figuring it would be a great opportunity, he decided to apply, and was accepted. After working as a Junior Exec for a year, Ming Chan successfully ran to be the Executive Volunteer Coordinator, filling retiring Terry Zhang’s position.
Ming Chan first learned chess in Grade One, when he was put in an after school program where he learned to play chess. Although he stopped playing in Grade Four, he still remembers how to play, and is quite enthusiastic to return back to his skill in chess he had in his younger years. Compared to his extremely rocky start the first day playing chess, Ming Chan has improved quite a bit, but still aims to return back to his “former glory,” back in his days in Grade One.
Ming Chan is currently a Grade 11 student, part of the IB program at Victoria Park C.I. His favourite subjects would be math, science, and music. Ming Chan absolutely adores music, being able to play the double bass, flute, and piano. In his spare time, Ming Chan enjoys playing video games, playing piano, and doing math problems.
