Indiana University Bloomington

Meet Our Staff

Melanie Castillo-Cullather
ACC Director

Sarah Moon
Program Associate

I am the new Program Associate and a recent graduate of Indiana University, where I received my doctorate in organ performance. I was the Student Outreach Coordinator for three years and am excited to continue developing programs and resources for the campus and community at the Asian Culture Center. I hope you will stop by and see what our center has to offer!

Student Assistants

Hallie Baumann

I am a junior from Kansas and New York, majoring in East Asian Language and Culture- Japanese. I am very involved in the theatre department at IU, do special effects makeup on the side, and think that ballroom dance is pretty shnazzy. I'm the henna artist here at the ACC and at many of the Cultural events around campus.

Dazu Shi

I am a sophmore majoring in Finance and Accounting. Born in China, I grew up in New Jersey and eventually landed here. Outside of academics, I enjoy photography and web design. While I'm not too good at basketball, feel free to challenge me in table tennis.

Laura Baumann

I am a senior this year attending Bloomington High School North. For one of my classes I chose to sign up for senior internship where I was able to choose a site of my choice and intern there for the year, so I picked the Asian Culture Center. So far it has been a blast meeting and working with different people, helping out with events and being apart of the excitement here at the ACC. I plan on attending Indiana University next year and hopefully being able to continue working here with the other wonderful staff members.

Vivian Chen

I am a sophomore in the Kelley School of Business, majoring in Finance, Accounting and International Business with a minor in Chinese. I grew up in Carmel, Indiana, but in the future my goal is to work in Asia. In my free time, I like to nap, youtube surf, be goofy with friends, laze around and stare at beautiful fountain pens online. Try not to confuse me with the other Vivian!

Vivian Ge

Hi, everyone! My name is Vivian, and I'm a senior. I'm majoring in Informatics with minors in Chinese, Business and Marketing. I'm from originally from Naperville, Illinois, but when I graduate, I can only see myself living and working in a big city. In my free time, I enjoy video games, shopping for clothes, makeup and school supplies. Anyways, I hope to see you at some of our many events at the ACC! I look forward to meeting you soon!

Hafsah Khan

I am a junior majoring in East Asian Languages and Cultures, focusing on Korea, and Biology. I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I love traveling, and I hope to study abroad in Korea one day. When I'm not at the ACC, I volunteer a lot at various events around Bloomington. My hobbies include reading, sleeping, and eating.
