About

The Kiwi Asian Club is a club for everyone on and off campus!

 

KAC is a social, cultural and sporting club, with plenty of weekly events on during the year covering all these aspects. With weekly sports and cultural sessions and our main event on the weekends, we are one of the most active clubs at the University. Fast forward 15 years, and we have over 850 members!

 

The club hopes to foster long-lasting friendships and celebrate the cultural diversity among students in New Zealand. We provide the ultimate network of friends and welcome everybody of any social and cultural background. If you’ve only just joined KAC, don’t be worried! The  club puts on team-based events for people to meet each other, and we have new members attending every week. Our old members will be more than happy to show you the ropes, and our friendly Exec team will help you along the way.

 

In 2012, KAC proudly won the awards for the AUSA General Club of the Year and the AUSA Supreme Club of the Year.

Jonathan Soulsby

President

Singing is his passion, Oozing emotions fill the air, Undoubtedly singing his whale songs. Lingering in the water as always, Surely he must be a merman, But how could a merman be a computer systems engineer, Your time to find out but in the next solar year

Guykit

Guykit Lang

Treasurer

I say Guy you say Kit. His name? Guykit!
He’s the treasurer of Kac so ask him for some money. His skill in Hearthstone are not too shabby. If you looking for a board game pro then look no further. Just look for the big friendly giant that gets you a fun time together. ‘Mic drop’

Shino Ikeda

I.T.

This future teacher is the cutest ball of sunshine.
With a heart of gold, you’ll find her cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
From sushi cakes to pizza, you’ll struggle to find something Shino can’t cook!

Cindy Qiu

You see a pink hat? Well, you’ve found Cindy! She is easily the one with the KAC factor in the team with many talents from singing to burning rice! Don’t get tricked just because she looks quiet, get to know her and you’ll know why we call her the savage Cinderella.

Joshua Young

From Wellington to Auckland for uni round two
Yung Josh is back again and he’s ready for us too
From engineering madman to racquet sport star,
He’s really got it going with a Jazzy blue car.
He’s a real nice bloke, he always makes us smile,
And any time you ask for help, he’ll go the extra mile
