Frank Yan has organized and contributed to play arts' new online warfare class program during the pandemic and expanded our class’s format variety and target viewers over time. He had taken the lead in managing and arranging our class recording for youtube submission to make sure the final publication of the class session was fully edited and available for the general public. Because he believes that sharing knowledge of art could really benefit society in ways that give everyone an opportunity to understand and participate in artistic passion.  Outside of PLAY, Frank is a senior at Maybeck High School as their Vice President for their student activity committee and a Student Representative on the Rules Committee for disciplinary actions of the student body. At the same time, He had experience in Journalism as both an experienced independent photographer and editor. Frank also has hobbies in painting, weight lifting, martial art, and helping with caring for endangered wildlife living conditions to protect our nature. Frank is looking forward to another great year with PLAY and make Play Art better further with his peers.

Leading everyone to raise money for cancer patients and guiding everyone to care for people around them...
