Mingjie – @itsmingjie
I'm a rising senior at Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville, Maryland. I'm passionate about computer science education & various social aspects of technology, and I run influential programs in many cities around the United States to get other students excited about creating their own innovative projects. Always traveling, always building.
I'm lucky to have become who I am today, and I want to support every passionate student to become as lucky as I am.
🎯 My Beliefs
Opportunities for everyone.
Growing up in Shanghai—a city of dreams and resources—I understand how much opportunities can help students reach their dreams. I strongly believe that these resources should be made available for every student, regardless of their location, background or status.
Great programs change lives.
For the past 2 years, I have been working with non-profit organizations like Hack Club and SRND to contribute in any ways I can to influence more people. These organizations have changed my life, and by helping new leaders run successful programs, I believe that I can potentially change theirs as well.
🏃 What am I up to?
Aside from that, I am also leading the organizing team of the following events...
