MU Spotlight 20/20
Lina Fu ’20
What is your role at the University and what is something many may not know about the work you do?
In 2017, I became a representative of USG, a position that I will hold until the end of 2018. Being a representative helps develop my leadership skills, and allows me to gather views from my peers and improve the learning experience for students. I am also the president for International Club. By planning, organizing, and carrying out club events, I have developed my ability to work within a team. Being an International Orientation Leader during summer 2017 was a lot of responsibility because we came out to events for incoming freshman so that they could learn how to better adapt to college life. I learned how to be responsible, respect individuals, and I developed leadership skills from these experiences in the Moravian University community.

Who is your hero? Why?
My hero is my grandfather on my mom’s side. I admire his perseverance. He was born into a poor family and did not have much of a chance to do what he wanted to do so he joined the military and by the time he retired he was a commander. He finished his college degree while he served and taught himself two languages. He is my hero because he makes me believe nothing is impossible.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Sure, someone out there will always be prettier, smarter, funnier, a harder worker, etc. And it’s so easy to drown ourselves in comparisons. But at the end of the day none of that matters because you’re not in competition with anyone. You only have to prove yourself to one person: you.
What sound do you love? Why?
I am a big fan of K-pop because they are great dancers and trained for two to four years to earn the opportunity to perform on stage. I feel proud of them; they are hard workers.
What is your favorite ice cream? Why?
I love coffee flavored ice cream. Ice cream is sweet and coffee is a bit bitter. Pure sweet is boring—bitter makes the flavor more interesting.
I can never resist a good __________.
What makes you happy?
Good weather, friends, and family
