Hi, welcome to my personal website! My name is Cherry Zhang, or 张樱子 (Chinese), or 張桜子 (Japanese) and I'm a self-motivated engineering student, driven by my curiosity and passion.

Currently I am studying Mechatronics Engineering (Honours, Co-op) with an intended Option (AKA a minor) in Management Sciences at the University of Waterloo. I am always excited about learning new technologies and solving challenging problems. I love working on projects that make a positive change and improve the wellbeing of people. In the next few years, I intend on pursuing graduate studies.

I love volunteering. I've taught music to refugee children, volunteered at hackathon workshops in Japan, volunteered at engineering/robotics outreach events to highschool students and girls, but my favorite thing would is helping tutoring high school students in STEM fields like physics and calculus. I have both informally tutored several high school students this way, and also officially tutored Syrian refugee high school students during their 2018 school year.

In terms of hobbies, I am an avid fan of the Gundam/Gunpla community, have built several Gunpla model kits, and was a panelist for Gundam/Gunpla related panels at national conventions like Anime North and Otakuthon. I have also been recently getting into semi-competitive Super Smash Bros Ultimate.


I love technology and innovation. That's why I decided to become an engineer.

I am in tune with my artistic and cultural side. I love history, philosophy, and Japanese culture, and of course sushi.
