KANGHUI ALISA ZHANG
Governor of the Young Leaders PAC
Proudly Representing California's Students since August 5, 2022
Governor Kanghui Zhang was born in Qingdao, China, and moved with her immediate family to Rancho Cucamonga, California, in 2014. She is known by those around her as “Alisa.” Intimate experience with human rights abuses in her home country motivates her to serve as a National Youth Collective member for Amnesty International USA and a Student Task Force Ambassador for the Human Rights Watch to champion the fight by and for young people for a better future through the lenses of sustainability, equity, and justice. As the founder and president of the Human Rights Club at her school, some of her accomplishments include leading two district-wide coalitions to engage hundreds of students in pushing for facilities audits and upgrades to reduce fossil fuel emissions and advocating for community protection in the face of anti-Asian hate crimes. She has also led letter-writing campaigns to free prisoners of conscience, spoken at city public hearings to push for residents’ interests, and supported local nonprofits through volunteer coordination to benefit Asian American immigrants and children of lower socioeconomic statuses. In addition to her advocacy and community involvement, Zhang is a national-award winning Academic Decathlete and her school’s Academic Decathlon team president, a National Honors Society officer, a Youth Mentoring Action Network Ambassador, a City of Rancho Cucamonga paid intern and Youth Leader, a Key Club Vice President, a three-year President’s Volunteer Service Award winner, and a published writer.
Zhang deeply understands the value of democracy and wishes to serve the people through her unwavering dedication to ensure the protection of fundamental human rights and the opportunity to thrive for all. She is adamant on putting Californians at the forefront of her considerations during her term of service and bridging ideological and political differences in favor of what can be done today for a brighter tomorrow for each and every resident.
