My name is Qian Zhang. I was born in Shenzhen, China, which is a large city just adjacent to Hong Kong. I completed my undergrad studies in Criminology at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. After graduation, I decided that the University of Pennsylvania was the right fit for me. The Criminology program offers a much more quantitative approach to this particular academic field of study which I feel will make me stronger in the profession I hope to achieve. After graduating, I plan to move back to Northern Virginia, as the area offers a great opportunity to dive into the National Security world. My primary goal for a future career is to become an agent with the FBI to help fight and minimize criminal activities.
