Grace Zhang recently completed her Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) and the Smith Certificate in Business. She has been part of the Queen's Student Alumni Association (QSAA) since 2021, first as an HR ambassador, where she was involved in creating the Volunteer Recognition program, and then as the HR-EDII director. In this role, Grace published the QSAA's first-ever Alumni Roadmap, an initiative that interviews various alums about their career path, academics, and extracurriculars to provide inspiration and insights regarding post-graduation. She is now working on the third edition, which has a theme of non-linear and non-traditional career paths.
As a proud new Queen's alumni, Grace hopes to one day provide mentorship to future Queen's students in the same manner as she has received from the Queen's alum community.
