2 SCHOLARSHIPs AWARDED:
What has your scholarship meant to you and how has it enabled you to pursue new and exciting opportunities?
The scholarship is more like a support to me. Right now I'm using it to fund one of my extracurricular projects. It is really exciting to work on something I like, while having financial support for the project.
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I will try to use what I have learned to innovate and improve people's lives. As a CS major, I will first do my work, and try to create good apps and services to facilitate people. I will also try to use what I know to help those in underdeveloped areas to achieve a better living.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
Right now I'm a sophomore majoring in Computer Science. I'm planning to graduate one year earlier, which will be May 2018.
What is your Hometown?
My Hometown is Taiyuan, located in Shanxi Province, China. The city has a very rich cultural background. It is also the Hometown of many famous Chinese emperors, and some historical sites can still be seen today.
Tell us about your favorite class, extracurricular activity, academic opportunity, community involvement or another unique experience.
My favorite extracurricular activity would be Bitcamp, which is a 36-hour long hackathon. Last year we made a create product and won one of the competitions during Bitcamp. It is a great opportunity for us to group up, brainstorm, come up with new ideas and realize it. It is an experience that we normally do not have during classes.
