Our Team

Tianshu Song

My name is Tianshu and I’m a junior studying Finance, International Business, and Political Science. I grew up living in China, Japan, and the U.S. which gave me a global perspective of the world as I strive to promote diversity within our communities. My vision for ABSA this year is to help students utilize their cultural backgrounds as strengths in the business world while providing them with the resources and networks necessary for both personal and professional development. If you have any questions about ABSA don’t hesitate to reach out to me at tsong57@uw.edu!



Austin Sharma
Vice President

I’m a second year student at the University of Washington studying finance at the Foster school of business. I hope to dive into a competitive and dynamic career in consulting. Apart from school, I love to play basketball, hike, and sing!




Vinny Natalia
Finance Director

My name is Vinny and I am a Junior studying Accounting. Born and raised in Indonesia but I spent 6 years studying in Singapore. I really love travelling but at the same time I really dislike flying, especially for long flights (but I guess it’s worth it in the end). I join ABSA because I really want to develop my leadership skills and be more confident in everything that I do. I hope that by the time I graduate I would have done everything that I want to do which includes hugging Dubs!




Silin Zeng
Creative Director

Hey all! I’m Silin, but you can just call me Selene. As a quick introduction, I’m a junior majoring in Computer Science and Finance. I was born in Guangzhou, China but I was raised in a small beach town in Washington called Edmonds. During my free time, I love to go explore coffee shops, play tennis, and compete in hackathons. As the Creative Director of ABSA, I will be responsible for ABSA’s website, posters, banners, and event invitations for this year. I joined ABSA to meet more people in the business field, and to also discover my creative side!

My name is Kristi Kanadi and I’m an international student from Indonesia. I am currently in my sophomore year and I plan to major in finance. I enjoy watching movies in my free time and explore new countries when I have the chance. Through ABSA, I look forward to be exposed to the real business world where I could connect with people of diverse backgrounds and become a more engaging person. I cannot wait to be able to share new and exciting experiences with the ABSA team!
