Hi, I’m Felix Wang.
I hail from a family of Chinese immigrants, who moved to St. Joseph Missouri where I was born. I am proud to say that they inspire me every day to do my best. I attended Central High School and graduated at the top of my class while also being involved in a wide array of clubs and activities.
Currently, I am a student at the University of Missouri majoring in IT and minoring in English. I hope in the future to go to law school and work in technology and patent law. My hobbies include playing the piano, writing code, reading a vast array of literature, and acting. I’m involved in several organization and leadership activities on campus. For the upcoming year, I will be the Treasurer of the University of Missouri Quizbowl team, the Treasurer for Mizzou Standup and the Marketing Director for Mizzou’s Sketch Comedy team!
Additionally, I am a teaching assistant for a sociology course on campus which has provided me with many valuable experiences. I am heavily involved in volunteer opportunities, currently working for the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department and the Smithsonian Transcription Center. Expanding on my love for volunteerism, during the summer of 2021 I worked for Americorps, specifically with the Fox Cities Habitat for Humanity in an IT position.
Ask any of my professors or teachers during my academic career, and they can attest my hard work and dedication. I enjoy collaborating with other people to accomplish larger goals and my organization skills only help me in this regards. Throughout my life, I have displayed flexibility, creativity and empathy. I know these skills will be ones which will be useful during my time in college, and my future career.
