Hello Everyone! My name is Smruthi Chintakunta and I am the president of International club for the year 2017-2018. I am originally from India though settled in St. Louis and I am a junior Biology and Psychology double major and aim to become a neurosurgeon. My favorite animal is the Giraffe and my favorite quote is “I would rather say ‘I can’t believe I did that’ than ‘I wish I had done that'” I hope this year will be very fun for International Club and I hope to make tons of memories with all of my old and new friends here at Truman!
My name is Linh Tran and I’m an international student from Vietnam. I have been in the U.S for 3 years now. I attended Truman last semester and my major is Accounting. I’m currently involved in 3 different organizations on campus. My favorite animal is dog which is also one of the reasons I chose Truman. During my free time, I enjoy scrap-booking, doing origami, and learning new languages. Besides that, I like watching Chinese and Korean reality shows, talk shows, and dramas.

Hometown: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Senior Communication major. Favorite TV show: Shameless. Favorite thing about Truman: when the leaves turn red during fall and also the friends I’ve made here are my lifeline while being 100000 miles away from home. I am a cat person forever. Fun fact: I speak English to my mum, Mandarin to my dad, and my parents speak Cantonese to each other whilst speaking different Chinese dialects to each side of my grandparents. On top of that we speak Malay to Malaysians sometimes, but English is my first language ever since I was born
