Virtual Club Meeting with Miller Zhou: Beyond Compassion

December 15, 2021 @ 19:00 - 20:00

Miller Wei Zhou

Miller Wei Zhou, executive director of Beyond Compassion (“BCI”), co-founded BCI in September 2019 having been inspired by Rotary International’s mission of service above self. Internationally, Beyond Compassion has created sustainable ways for individuals living in rural villages of the Philippines which included building homes, developing water wells and providing grants for small businesses. Additionally, Beyond Compassion has collaborated with Brazilian Rotaracts in assisting with the settling of Venezuelan refugees in northern Brazil. In early 2020, Miller initiated a Covid prevention challenge on Instagram that was successfully taken on by over 300 Rotaract, Interact and Rotary clubs across Europe, Latin America, South Asia, Mid-Asia, and the Middle East. Utilizing his background in stand-up comedy, Miller with co-founder Jeff Bodner started Comedy for Compassion, which to date has fundraised thousands of dollars to support his non-profit. Miller has produced and stared in numerous stand-up comedy shows throughout the cities of New York, Hoboken, Ithaca, and Cambridge, performed at famous venues such as Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, and universities such as Columbia University, NYU, International House, Cornell & Harvard University.
