Co-Presidents:

Jenny Choi

Salut à tou.te.s ! I'm Jenny, and I major in Comparative Literature and French as part of the Class of '22. I started studying French in high school, and I studied abroad at NYU Paris for a bit in Spring 2020. I'm very excited to work with Yujing as Co-Presidents and support all our e-board members to facilitate interesting events for everyone, regardless of our levels of fluency. We'll be doing our best to bring together our Francophone community at NYU, and feel free to strike up a conversation!

Director of Events:

jamie simonson

Hi everyone, my name is Jamie and I’m so excited to be your director of events this year! I’m a rising junior majoring in economics and global liberal studies and I’m also a big Francophile. We’ve been working hard on bringing back our fan favorite events from pre-COVID days as well as designing lots of new and even more fun events. This year, I’m looking forward to being able to see all the familiar faces I’ve missed and of course getting to know our new members as well! We’re all excited to have some sort of normalcy back in our lives and I hope the French Club can play a part in that for you. À bientôt!
