I was born in Great Falls, Montana and grew up in Chester, Montana. My intellectual passions include healthcare and the role the mind, body, and spirit play in determining one's health. Outside of academics, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors with my dog Porter. My favorite outdoor hobbies include hiking, mountain biking, trail running, and camping. I care about the DHC because they have fostered a sense of community filled with support and encouragement. I met some of my best friends through the DHC and I visit the staff for any academic and professional advising needs I have. The DHC has greatly enhanced my time at UM and I am happy show thanks and give back through the Student Advisory Council.
Zhibing Zhou (Cara)
Cara comes from the tropical land of southern China. She started living in the Big Sky country, Montana, in 2013. She enjoys, and longs for more, adventures in a place full of wonders of nature—white water rafting, floating, running into buffalo “road block” in the Yellowstone National Park, hiking through a canyon to find the hidden lakes… Cara is studying biochemistry and pre-med sciences. Besides keeping her nose down studying a lot, Cara loves listening to music, ice skating, volunteering and reading books in her spare time. She believes in doing what she feels passionate for, then nothing would be too difficult to conquer. “Reach for the sky because if you should happen to miss, you’ll still be among the stars.”(By Rosa Torcasio, “Never Say Never” in Chicken Soup for the College Soul.)
