Karen Zhou | “Stay organized and you can do anything”

The OA team had the pleasure of grabbing dinner with Karen Zhou at a California Pizza Kitchen recently in Irvine. You may not have heard of Karen, but she is on her way to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the international figure skating scene. She has competed in senior level competitions all over the world while maintaining a 3.9 average GPA, as well as participating in numerous extra curricular activities. With her recent gold medal win in the senior ladies events at the 2010 U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating Championships last August, this is slowly propelling Karen to her goal of qualifying for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. She currently trains in Artesia, California, the same training ground for Olympic Gold Medalist Yu-Na Kim (whom she mentioned she sees everyday!).

Just in case you were wondering, yes, Jason Yang is just as quirky, funny, and lovable in person as he is on YouTube. But what’s more, this virtuoso violinist has a more serious and insightful side to him. His fascinating expositions, feelings towards the electric violin, and musical inspirations came pouring out over fried scallop bowls in Little Tokyo with TheOtherAsians. So just how did OAer Julie Zhan get Jason to disclose a never-before-heard story involving acid, blindness, and a performance? Four words: Arnold Palmer. Free Refills.
