BANG BANG! It's our 14th Gen Land Coach, Aaron Zhou.
Aaron has paddled with UCIDB since 11th Gen, when he was nothing more than a wee lad starting his Freshman year of College. He started out with plenty of slow, very slow time trials, but within the last two years, he has consistently remained one of the fastest paddlers on this team, always placing 1st or 2nd! He is a leader in many ways, from the countless hours he spends at the gym (check out his shoulders) to the land workouts he designs, but he is most inspirational through the attitude he carries. Aaron leads through kindness and compassion. He always goes out of his way to make sure the team is happy and is looking after every member. During his year as Land Coach, he really made sure our members were safe throughout our tough training periods and would reach out to teammates who were injured to help them heal and check on their recovery. He reminds the team to be a good person and he does so through example. He has made a huge impact on this team through his positive attitude and, although we are sad to see such an amazing person graduate from the team, we wish him the best in his future endeavors!
You can most likely keep in contact with him on LOL (League of Legends) 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. #seniorspotlight #ucidb #dragonboat #uci #ucirvine
