Tony Zhang – Rotary Peace Fellow.

Hi Guys, I’d like to introduce you to my friend Tony Zhang. Tony is a Rotary Peace Fellow and he and his wife Jessie have just moved to Brisbane last month. Tony will be studying International Relations at the University of Queensland.

I met Tony through my friends at the Rotary Club of Shanghai, Mr Frank Yih and Mr Randal Eastman. Tony came with us to the Rotary Club of Cleveland and it was a great night.

Tony is interested in Peace Building through Sport – funny that.  Kinda what I’m into!  Anyway Tony is going to do some work with my friends at MDA. MDA settles newly arrived refugees in Brisbane, Rockhampton and Toowoomba.

I’ve learnt a bit about the Rotary Peace Fellowship program.  Those who get into the program get to study Peace Studies at one of the peace centres around the world and get money for their studies and living expenses.  There are only five universities around the world and one of them is the University of Queensland.

I hope you have a great time in Brisbane Tony!
