OYW Delegate: Holly Zhang

Get to know our One Young World Delegates!

Name: Yunzhu Holly ZHANG

Job Title: Global Communications Manager

Hometown: Harbin, China

What I Do?

I pull together shows, including Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, to have people all around the world to see our coolest products. I translate for our Chairman and CEO Yuanqing and senior leaders, and sit in their media interviews and earnings announcements. I take international media groups to visit our worldwide campuses and generate media coverage. I’m working with passion.

Places I’ve Gone?

I grew up in China and moved to the U.S. after high school. I’ve travelled to more than 20 major cities in China and more than 30 states in the U.S. and many other countries, including Czech Republic, France, Germany, Itlay, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, etc. Early next year, I will go to Santiago and Paragonia in Chile, so excited.

My Best Day @ Lenovo?

After three months joining Lenovo, I sat together with our honorable Chairman Liu for the Fast Company magazine interview, supporting his translation and PR. He was sooo nice, and after the interview, we talked about life journey and families.  

Why I am excited to be a OYW Delegate?

I attended One Young World in 2012 as the only representative from Lenovo. I ended up being on stage as BRICS panel speaker. I made friends from all over the world and from different industries. This is such an eye-opening event, which makes people feel like there are so much we can and should do to make this world a better place!

My Passions?

I want to be an international resident, meaning that I can adapt and get involved into any circumstance at any time, gain deep friendship and a global network. Especially, I want to help people in China and the U.S. to better understand each other and work together without boundaries, and serve as a liaison to bring people together and leverage the culture strengths.

Fun Facts?

  1. I cannot live my life without sports and excising, which is so critical to keep me awake.
  2. I had my undergraduate in UNC-Chapel Hill and I’m getting MBA from Duke, so I can never go to a UNC vs. Duke game anymore, please don’t judge me, please.
  3. A friend of mine had an emergency and needed blood. I drove to the hospital in the middle of the day and donated 600 milliliters blood to her (regular donation is 200-300 milliliters for Asian women).
