Co-Director of the University Chapter
Alex Chou was born in the United States, raised in Taiwan, and currently lives in Japan. He was enrolled at Waseda University's School of International Liberal Studies after graduating as valedictorian from high school in 2017. His studies primarily focus on US foreign policy in the Far East and cross-Strait relations. As a big fan of the American political drama "Madam Secretary," Alex is seeking a career in foreign affairs. He is also passionate about US politics and social justice and can be seen at both academic seminars as well as social activism events. Before serving as a committee member at Democrats Abroad Japan, Alex was part of a team tasked with drafting the ICCPR & ICESCR shadow report for Amnesty International’s Taiwan office. He is also working on YCAPS University Initiative with Hasumi Tani and is interested in promoting exchange between military personnel and university students.
