Shaun Yan

President, Emeritus
This is Shaun. After serving on the CHF E-Board for two years and making substantial contribution to the development of CHF, Shaun magically disappeared at the end of the 2017 Fall Semester. Rumor has it that Shaun is now working for a small private equity start-up called "Blackstone." "Shaun's tears can cure cancer, yet he never cried. Well, except for the time when he confessed to the lady of his dream by saying 'will you hold me to maturity' but she couldn't understand his thick British-Singaporean accent."
