OUR STORY

The Kiwi Asian Club is a club for everyone on and off campus!

KAC is a social, cultural, sporting and charitable club, with plenty of weekly events on during the year covering all these aspects. With weekly sports and cultural sessions and our main event on the weekends, we are one of the most active clubs at the University. Fast forward 19 years, and we have over 850 members!

 

The club hopes to foster long-lasting friendships and celebrate the cultural diversity among students in New Zealand. We provide the ultimate network of friends and welcome everybody of any social and cultural background. If you’ve only just joined KAC, don’t be worried! The club puts on team-based events for people to meet each other, and we have new members attending every week. Our old members will be more than happy to show you the ropes, and our friendly Exec team will help you along the way.

 

In 2012, KAC proudly won the awards for the AUSA General Club of the Year and the AUSA Supreme Club of the Year. Kobe.

 

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

 

JAEHO SO

President

Gvng gvng, it’s your president, meet Jaeho!

He might seem scary at first, I know,

But if you get him talking about yugioh,

You’ll see he’s just a warm gentle giant.

 

He loves Pokémon and knows all about wine,

He loves to dance, despite the fact that he whines,

And also, he’s really 169. 

- and a half. I’m not lying.

 

So come join KAC, we’ve got events every week,

And once you meet Jaeho, he’ll make you laugh till you’re weak.

RUTH HA

Treasurer

Meet Ruth! 

She loves art and always pulls up in fits that scream “off duty French runway model."

You’ll find her hanging out with her friends, having an intellectual discussion and asleep at a desk at the general library with all her work out beside her (environmentally friendly) coffee cup with the remains of her fourth coffee that day.

 

Ruth is an organised, level headed and cultured being who loves naps, movies, food and spending too much money.

 

Fulfilling all your e-girl dreams she’s the best person to go to for coffee and suggestions and a good ole yarn. 

 

and of course in KAC you’ll know her as our precious treasurer, because somethings got to fund that killer gear!

BRANDON WONG

Media

Introducing our media man for 2020 - Brandon!

 

Not sure who he is? Look for the one wearing a cap,

He’ll be sure to get back to you ASAP!

Although he hangs out with 30yr olds at work,

He’s still 13 at heart; rocking a cheeky smirk!

A gentle soul who loves drawing and games,

He also gyms too so he’s definitely got the gains!

 

Say hi to Brandon - his smile melts you like butter,

But be careful! He might make your heart flutter!

 

CODY LIU

I.T.

Cody isn’t just your typical shy boy, 

He has a brain you cannot avoid. 

Doing a PhD in engineering, 

Don’t worry, you’ll still hear him cheering.

He’ll crack a joke without you knowing,

And the next minute you’ll be on the floor rolling.

He may be the oldest in the team,

But can alcohol keep him on the beam?

Let’s find out by coming to all KAC events, 

And maybe you’ll catch him hanging on the fence. 

DANIELLA PEREIRA

Who’s your 2020 Social-Cultural?

And no doubt she’s funny.

Ready to come at you with diverse events

REBECCA HU
