As a youth from southern Fujian (Hokkien), entrepreneurial spirit runs in my family’s and my own bones. From a young age, we were instilled with the concept that one must become their own “boss” and setup their own business. In my heart, I firmly believe that I belong to the business world (maybe not the academic one).

OpenIoT Team

During undergraduate, my two roommates and I co-founded a tech group called OpenIoT. With an entrepreneurial spirit in technology, we participated in numerous innovation and entrepreneurship competitions. As of 2024, the OpenIoT team has grown to include 28 official members and has accumulated a total of six national-level competition awards and over $20000 funding.
