Side Projects

Beyond being a technical product manager

01

From March to May 2023, I successfully conducted 72 in-depth interviews, highlighting individuals' life trajectories since high school. This effort resulted in the creation and publication of 72 informative articles, tailored to guide high school seniors from small towns in exploring post-college opportunities.

02

Chinese community in Google NYC from 0 to 1500

Since January 2019, I have spearheaded the establishment and growth of the Chinese community at Google NYC, starting from ground zero. By Q3 2023, we have cultivated a thriving community of 1000+ participants, facilitating regular in-person gatherings and maintaining 5+ vibrant online groups, fostering an environment where individuals feel encouraged to seek advice and engage with others.

03

Text-to-painting creation

Throughout the pandemic, I cultivated a newfound passion for painting, crafting a unique approach centered around conveying specific text messages through the interplay of lines and colors. Since 2023, I've actively utilized MidJourney for inspiration and am enthused by the rapid advancements in text-to-image AI technology.

04

In February 2020, I assumed leadership of an 8-person volunteer team, orchestrating fundraising events and coordinating donations to hospitals in Guangzhou, China. Within a remarkable three-week span, we successfully raised over $105,000 and facilitated the shipment of over 200,000 PPEs.

In March 2020, as the pandemic struck New York, we rallied additional support, securing over $4,000 in donations for local hospitals in New York and Boston, and procuring an additional 50,000 PPEs from sources in China.
