Our Auckland Team
Kendall identifies as a forth generation Chinese New Zealander who is very passionate about the Chinese Community in New Zealand after experiencing the amazing opportunities NZCA offered throughout her life so far. She is on the Future Dragonz committee in hopes of giving back, connecting and driving the next generation of Chinese Leaders in New Zealand. In her spare time you can find her binge watching TV shows, listening to music too loudly and napping.
Joan is a marketing enthusiast who loves all things creative. She identifies herself as being a second generation Chinese New Zealander and stands by the importance of being connected with like-minded young professionals within the NZ Chinese Community. Her main reason for joining the FD team is because it allows her to give back to the NZ Chinese Community in a fun and valuable way. In her spare time, you will see Joan going on hikes, and working on her photography skills.
Nevin is an aspiring photo-artist, coffee connoisseur, gym enthusiast, and loves his outdoor adventures – if it’s not hiking in the summer, it’s snowboarding in the winter. He joined Future Dragonz to help connect the wider Auckland Chinese community, provide unique experiences for attendees, whilst making new connections. Currently he is working for Hynds Pipes – a manufacturer and supplier of huge concrete products for the civil industry as a Mechanical Engineer. In the not-so-distant future, he’d love to carve the slopes of Whistler, trek the Everest terrain, and see the world from above while performing a starfish.
Karina is an engineering graduate who has a curiosity for the intricacies of life. In her spare time she likes to discover aesthetically pleasing cafes, explore the beautiful New Zealand scenery, read a good book or hit the gym for a workout. She sees Future Dragonz as an opportunity to bring together young Chinese New Zealanders and create a welcoming environment for individuals to socialise, network and try something new.
