Chris Kuang

2018 Cheng Fellow

Chris Kuang is a junior at Harvard College studying Applied Mathematics and Economics, originally from Winchester, MA. Chris is the co-founder of Coding it Forward, a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit that inspires and empowers young people with technology skills to create social impact in sectors such as healthcare, education, nonprofit, and government. He helps lead the Civic Digital Fellowship — the first-of-its-kind data science and technology internship program partnering with federal agencies. In summer 2018, Chris oversaw a cohort of 38 fully-funded software engineering, data science, product management, and human-centered design fellows (undergraduate and graduate students) across six federal agencies in Washington, D.C. As a Cheng Fellow, Chris hopes to work towards scaling and sustaining Coding it Forward as a social enterprise to continue inspiring and empowering the next generation of digital leaders to create change. In addition to his work as a Cheng Fellow, Chris serves as Chair of the Harvard Political Union at the Institute of Politics — the oldest collegiate debating society in the United States — and as Sports Photo Editor for Harvard Yearbook Publications. He is passionate about public service, civic engagement, traveling, and Boston sports.
