Sarah Moon, Graduate Assistant

I am a fourth-year doctoral student studying organ performance in the Jacobs School of Music. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio and completed my bachelor's and master's degrees at Oberlin Conservatory. I would eventually like to teach music at the college level and continue playing for churches. I enjoy cooking, painting, traveling, kick-boxing, and discovering new places in Indiana.

Hallie Baumann

I am a junior from Kansas and New York, majoring in East Asian Language and Culture- Japanese. I am very involved in the theatre department at IU, do special effects makeup on the side, and think that ballroom dance is pretty shnazzy. I'm the henna artist here at the ACC and at many of the Cultural events around campus.

Laura Baumann

I am a senior this year attending Bloomington High School North. For one of my classes I chose to sign up for senior internship where I was able to choose a site of my choice and intern there for the year, so I picked the Asian Culture Center. So far it has been a blast meeting and working with different people, helping out with events and being apart of the excitement here at the ACC. I plan on attending Indiana University next year and hopefully being able to continue working here with the other wonderful staff members.

Vivian Chen

I am a sophomore in the Kelley School of Business, majoring in Finance, Accounting and International Business with a minor in Chinese. I grew up in Carmel, Indiana, but in the future my goal is to work in Asia. In my free time, I like to nap, youtube surf, be goofy with friends, laze around and stare at beautiful fountain pens online. Try not to confuse me with the other Vivian!

Vivian Ge

Hi, I'm Vivian. I'm a sophomore majoring in Informatics with a Business cognate, and a Marketing, as well as a Chinese minor. I'm originally from Naperville, Illinois. In my free time, I enjoy long walks on the beach, writing, and shopping for clothes, kitchen, and school supplies. Anyways, this is my first year at the ACC, and I'm excited to work with everyone, as well as getting the chance to meet new people. Hope to meet some of you soon. (:

Hafsah Khan

I am a sophomore majoring in East Asian Languages and Cultures, focusing on Korea, and Biology. I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I love traveling, and I hope to study abroad in Korea one day. When I'm not at the ACC, I work at the IU Opera Theatre and volunteer a lot at various events around Bloomington. My hobbies include reading, sleeping, and eating.
