I am Yan Zhang, known as Cola. I have been studied on media design and visual communication for 8 years in both Shanghai and Rotterdam. Media is an in-between channel to transfer information, and connect people and resources. My education and work practice has given me the capability to built a pleasant, efficient, and influential information bridge in a creative way.
I was born in Shanghai, a huge international city melting together different cultures. Since 2010, when my Master program started in Rotterdam, the Dutch lifestyle and mindset influenced me so much. So now I see myself as a DutChinese, who rooted in Chinese culture and cultivated in Dutch life. This identity helps me to understand two worlds, analyze both appeals to achieve a mutual understanding and win-win cooperation.
