Thanks for coming by and checking out my personal website! I am Ruichen Zhang, a tech enthusiast and aspiring software engineer. Let's scroll down to see what I'm capable of!
My name is Ruichen. I was born in Nanjing, China and
now live in Philadelphia, PA.
I love music, postmodern literature, traveling, cooking, home bartending, and I am a cocktail blogger with 1000+ followers in China!
Motivated for a tech career, I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Computer Science (MCIT) at the University of Pennsylvania. My career goal is to become a full-stack software engineer after I graduate in May, 2023.
As a career changer from chemistry to computer science, I feel proud that I am able to expand my vision beyond my undergraduate major to embrace new opportunities in the tech field. I really like the idea of working with smart people and taking up technical challenges on a daily basis. More importantly, I believe that by becoming a software engineer, I can creatively pursue things I have a passion for, and make more impact as an open source contributor.
