Featured Student: Yibo Zheng “Dean”, Taking Leadership Opportunities at GDS
Yibo Zheng, “Dean” is a senior studying at Greensboro Day School in NC. From his first days as a student in the U.S., Dean showed an interest in getting involved and making an impact in his new school. He has been active in several school activities, including basketball and student government. Dean was also inducted into the school’s National Honor Society last fall and maintains a place on the Head’s and Honor Roll Lists.
Dean is admired by both his peers and the educators at the school. Randy Doss, Director of Admissions at Greensboro Day School spoke highly of Dean:
“He demonstrates strong initiative and likes to get involved in all kinds of activities. He is also a natural leader who is not afraid to tackle tough questions. Moreover, he is neither afraid to make a mistake nor unwilling to learn from any missteps. Yibo also has the ability to think out of the box. Yibo’s initiative, service to others and strong emotional intelligence have earned him considerable admiration and respect, from his host family, classmates and teachers”.
His efforts and hard work have paid off; Dean was elected as Class President this fall. New Oasis asked Dean to share with us his experience in this position thus far. Listen to what Dean had to say about his election and school experience by clicking here.
