Jerry Lee| Media Pro

Hi, I’m Jerry Lee, the "Media Pro" of the Undergraduate Global Ally Program! I’m a sophomore from Melbourne, Australia and my major is Radio/Television/Film. As an international student, I am very excited to be a part of the International Office’s endeavor to help international students and build a strong international community at Northwestern. If you ever see me roaming around campus, don’t be afraid to say hi to me! I’m sure we’ll be able to bond over one of my wide array of interests and hobbies, like watching and making movies (what a surprise), NBA, soccer, field hockey, golf, Smash, philosophy, music composition, classical/romantic music, Clash Royale, DnD, photography, Mahjong, Sichuan food, and of course, sleeping.
