October Spotlight: Wendy Zhang
1. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
I first got involved with FACL BC when the BC chapter got started in 2011. I remember how exciting it was to have an organization that represented Asian Canadians at a time when there were so few of us in our year at UBC Allard. When I was called, I still remember the shock when I found out I was only the second of two Zhang's listed on the BC Law Society website. Imagine that, the last name Zhang being rare! It's good to see we are not so rare anymore.
2. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
The Gala has always been my favourite. It is always a good event to connect with the community, which is sometimes hard to do with busy lawyers.
3. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
4. What is something that not many people know about you?
My first Canadian language is French, and I speak French at home with my spouse.
