My name is William (Will) Zhou, and I am from New York. I am in the Questrom class of 2022 majoring in business administration and management and am a Boston University Student Union Questrom senator, as well as a member of the All-Campus Orchestra. I was awarded the National AP Scholar Awards for two consecutive years and am a member of the National Society of High School Scholars. I enjoy studying photography, having been a finalist of the Photographer’s Forum Best of College and High School International Photography Competition for the past two years in a row. I have played in and led many orchestras, including the Conference All-State Orchestra, the Area All-State Youth Symphony, the All County Orchestra, and the Greater Westchester Youth Symphony. I also use my knowledge to help out hundreds of thousands of people on a daily basis at an international scale. I achieve this through several of my projects, including two chatbots that I have launched and promoted, as well as open source programming community projects and curated code repositories with hundreds of contributors that I founded and maintain. Just as my projects and activities enable me to connect people worldwide, I plan on applying my knowledge and experience of interacting with the diverse community here at BU. One of the essential duties of a BU senator is to connect with the student body, and I look forward to meeting new people and hearing everyone’s thoughts, opinions, questions, and concerns!
