Lu Chen ‘17
Hi! My name is Lu Chen. I was born in Fuzhou, China but now I live in New Jersey. I'm a rising junior, majoring in Biology and potentially minoring in health studies. I am somewhat on the Pre-med track because I am considering going to Pharmacy School after Haverford. I LOVE white rice. I feel happy just eating a bowl of plain white rice. I enjoy watching movies with friends and am always looking for movie recommendations from different countries. This is my 2nd year as ISRP so I'm super excited! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or just want to chat! See you in August!

Zhongtian Guan ‘18
Friends! Welcome to Haverford. I am Zhongtian Guan (Jeffrey) from Class of 2018. I will choose Mathematics or Philosophy as my major. I was born and grew up in China before attending three years of high school in Maryland. With an enthusiastic yet reticent personality, I enjoy watching comedy and independent films, listening to all kinds of music (with a concentration on piano jazz, classical and rock music), playing soccer, and sharing my thoughts with friends on books I read. Starting off my sophomore year, I will be a tutor for incarcerated men and women through the Petey Greene Program. Please feel free to reach out to me for any questions, concerns, or anything that appeals to you. I look forward to meeting you in August.
Ann-Victoria Isaac ’18
My name is Ann-Victoria Isaac. I am a freshman. I am originally from Haiti and I have been living in the States for 2 years and a half now. This year is my first year participating in ISO at Haverford College and this is my first year working as an intern at the International Student Office. I intend to major in Biology, minor in the public Health and I also plan to follow the pre-med track. On campus I am the Co-Secretary of the Student Council, the treasurer of the Questbridge Scholar Network, the Dorm Resource person in Barclay and I work at the Chemistry and Biology labs. When I am not studying or working, you can find me practicing my not-so-good piano skills, lounging in the grass in front of Barclay and exploring the different restaurants around campus. I look forward to working with all of you this year.

See you in August!!!
Maryna Khromava '16
Hi, friends! My name is Maryna Khromava, and I am a rising senior at Haverford. I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY, but I lived in Brest, Belarus for 16 years before my family came to U.S. At Haverford, I major in Chemistry with a Biochemistry concentration. When I am not in a lab, you will probably find me hanging out with my friends, cooking, or taking pictures of everything and everywhere. I like to travel, and I spent my last summer in Marseille, France working at the research lab. On campus, I am a TA for a General Chemistry laboratory, so if any of you plan to take Chemistry in fall, I will greet you there!
Matthew Liu '18
Hey there. My name is Matthew Liu, and I’m a rising sophomore. I was born in Texas, but lived most of my life in Hong Kong. I used to be your typical teenager, who enjoyed playing computer games and hanging out with friends. However, after coming to Haverford, I became a man. Now, I enjoy midnight strolls around the duck pond, where I usually write my daily haiku. For lighter readings, I enjoy the companies of Nietzsche and Descartes. And when I’m not busy studying Thoretical Physics or Chaos Theory, I’m usually meditating in a dimly lit room. As you can clearly see, I am very excited to meet you all.
Yabin Lu '17
Hi friends! My name is Yabin Lu, and I’m a rising junior at Haverford from Shanghai, China. I will probably be a physics major and astrophysics minor, though I am still looking for ways to incorporate my interests in design/engineering and philosophy into my major. I am also part of International Students Association, Haverford Asian Students Association and Haverford Students for Justice in Palestine. On campus, you can also find me wander on Founders Green looking at the blue sky or waiting for the sunset. I am looking forward to enjoying the nature with you at Haverford!

Hi, I am Ishaan and am a freshman. I was born in Boston, Massachusetts with German and Indian roots and have lived abroad in Germany, India and most recently Singapore since then. I am an avid sports fan and play tennis, cricket, soccer and golf in my free time. I play on the tennis team here at Haverford so you are likely to find me hitting balls on the courts in the afternoons! I also love eating, travelling and experiencing new cultures and traditions. My academic interests include Psychology and Philosophy, but I am still undecided about my major. The ISO program is a great way of getting to know people from all over the world, and I really look forward to meeting you in the fall!

I'm so excited to meet you!!

Rosalind Xu '18
Salvete! (Hello everyone in Classical Latin). My name is Rosalind (Jiaming) Xu, a rising sophomore from Nanjing, China. currently I am considering Chemistry and Mathematics major. Outside of academics, I also enjoy traveling, exploring nature and folk dancing (though I cannot say I am very good at that:). When I came to Haverford one year earlier, it was my absolute first time in United States (oops) and I did encounter a number of problems; however, as it turned out Haverford is a welcoming place for y'all, and you can always find your own place in this small and lovely community. I am looking forward to meeting you at ISO, introducing Haverford to you guys and helping you conquer the problems you might have. However, feel free to reach out to me before that time. Valete! (guess what it means?)
