Johnson Chen

Currently studying at University of Waterloo for Software Engineering

I am a hard working, dedicated, friendly, outgoing and conscientious individual with a passion for software development and an aspiration to make a difference in the world.

In my spare time, I am a voracious reader and an eager learner, and I absolutely love learning new things that will make me smarter. I avidly follow NBA. I occasionally play piano and improvise melodies. When I'm not following tech blogs or reading books, I quite enjoy creating, tinkering with and hacking hardwares and softwares. I am incredibly passionate about technology and its ability to change the world; I aspire to be part of that change.
