Yameng

 Yameng Zhang is a freshman in Columbia College (’19) from Beijing, China. She is pretty sure her love for science began at birth, but it really took off when she viewed the documentary Microcosmos at age six. Since then, her passion has driven her to try beekeeping in a remote village in southwest China, wander the forests of Malaysia and the wetlands of Hainan Island to study biodiversity, and carefully weed her own garden full of lettuce and China Roses. She plans to major in Neuroscience. Her favorite topics in science include bees, medicine, and the brain. In her free time, she likes to study Chinese poetry, think about entrepreneurship, and practice the harmonica.
