Coding it Forward
Chris Kuang is a sophomore in Lowell House studying Applied Mathematics and Economics. He is passionate about politics, civic engagement, traveling, and New England Patriots football. At Harvard, he is active at the Institute of Politics, where he serves as Chair of the Harvard Political Union, and with Harvard Yearbook Publications as the Sports Photo Editor.
Chris grew up in nearby Winchester, MA and has a passion for civic engagement. He has organized student voter registration drives, volunteered for grassroots local campaigns, and is always looking for more ways to engage young people in civic life. At Harvard, he helped found Coding it Forward, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that inspires and empowers students with technology skills to create impact in sectors of healthcare, education, and government.
This summer, he will be in Washington, D.C. coordinating Coding it Forward's second cohort of Civic Digital Fellows at federal agencies while also paving the way for a new pipeline of technical talent into public service.
Through his work with Coding it Forward, Chris is excited to help bridge his academic pursuits in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences with his energy for public service, to inspire the next generation of digital leaders.
