Introducing Will Cheung, SOWA’s Executive & Operations Coordinator
by School's Out Washington | | Posted under
We are thrilled to have Will Cheung joining our team as SOWA’s Executive & Operations Coordinator. Take a few minutes to learn about Will and what brought him to SOWA.
Where are you from?
I was born in Houston, Texas, grew up in Sarasota, Florida, and then I went to college and have spent the last 12 years in Orlando, Florida.
What do you like to do in your own time?
Since I am a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest I am spending most of my free time exploring the city and the region. I’m trying to find and experience all the favorite local hotspots and also hiking and camping the beautiful wilderness that is the Pacific Northwest. If I’m not out on the town or in the woods I am an avid cook and a voracious consumer of books on topics ranging from science fiction to economics and social sciences.
What brought you to SOWA?
My most recent professional experience was working with a New Media start-up in Orlando and I had reached a point in my professional and personal life that I felt that I needed to make a change. I took a leap and moved to the Seattle area in search of a new career in the nonprofit field and after a short search I found a position with SOWA that meshed perfectly with my previous experience.
Tell us one thing that you are proud of
In college I joined a fraternity and the chapter was nearly on the brink of closing. After joining I was elected into a leadership position within the chapter and worked with the rest of the executive leadership and after four years of hard work we were honored with the award of Top Chapter of the entire international fraternity. One of the many factors that lead to our honoring was our work in breaking fund raising records in support of St. Jude’s Childrens Research Hospital, the fraternity’s national philanthropy.
