Huey Tran

Huey Tran is a senior at Stanford University studying International Relations and Arabic. At Stanford, Huey has been involved with a variety of development and socially-responsible organizations. He has experience in both the national nonprofit sector (where he has worked for a non-profit capacity-building firm) as well as the international nonprofit sector (where he has spent 3 months respectively in Vietnam and India researching the effectiveness of the international aid structure). He is currently primarily interested in the intersection at which social entrepreneurship and urban development meet, with a still wandering eye on the international sector. To keep sane, Huey enjoys rock climbing, traveling on a shoestring budget, being a hip-hop head, and monthly trips to Yosemite.

Luyin Zhao

Luyin Zhao’s passion about nonprofit origins from her experience with Harmony Foundation of Canada in 2009, when she served as a project assistant of sustainable community training for mayors and residence across China and saw the power of bottom-up community development. After that she continued her dedication to nonprofit at Clean Development Mechanism Club of Peking University and Public Advice International Foundation, during which she acted leadership and analytical roles to a great extent and covered a variety of topics such as sustainable development, food safety, and poverty elimination. Her unsatisfactory about nonprofit’s institutional inefficiency during these experiences led to her thinking and searching for a way of improvement and an instant resonation with Palindrome’s philosophy.

Luyin holds a BEng in Urban Planning and a BA in Economics from Peking University. She is now pursuing am MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University.
