Jar-Yee Liu| Co-Chair
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Jar-Yee is a junior at UCLA studying Developmental Biology with a minor in Global Health. He enjoys spending his free time pestering his mother by baking her bountiful amounts of exclusively gluten-free “sweets”. Jar-Yee joined UCLA’s local Team HBV chapter at the beginning of his freshman year, and has since become increasingly involved, serving as the Regional Advisor for the National Board during its 2017 term. Stepping up to Co-Chair this year, Jar-Yee hopes to increase resources to chapters nationwide and provide insight to tangible progress being made in the #JoinJade movement. His eventual hope is to fully embrace the diversity of each chapter, and utilize that diversity to spark global awareness and social change.
