Dr Henry Huang is our International Volunteer Alumni Coordinator (VAC) in Beijing.
Dr Huang graduated from the School of Architecture and Urban Planning in 2005 with a Master’s degree with first class honours, and a PhD degree in 2011. He has been a VAC for the University’s Beijing Alumni Club since 2012, where he helps to connect our community in China.
“We organise events throughout the year, including BBQs, sports events, and family dinners,” says Dr Huang.
Dr Huang got involved in volunteering because of the great memories he had at the University.
“When I came back to Beijing at the end of 2010, I really wanted to keep the memories of such a special time of my life alive.”
He uses volunteering to get together with friends and share life experiences, and believes that others should get involved in volunteering.
“When you become a Volunteer Alumni Coordinator you make many new alumni friends as well as lasting connections with the University.”
He believes that volunteering at the University of Auckland has enriched his life.
“I have made friends that have made my life richer and more colourful,” he says.
