Name: Jason Han

High School: McNair Academic High School

Internship Site: Jersey City Medical Center

Career Interests: Computer Science. Although my passion for computer science materialized in high school, its roots rest much earlier in my life. This passion began when I first watched my dad work with computers, where he quickly typed in codes and made screens appear and disappear. My family settled in Jersey City, NJ around 20 years ago before I was born. Since we lived near my dad’s workplace, he was able to take me to tour his workplace and look at all the large computers. This experience opened my eyes to how much impact computers have on society.”

Favorite Quote: “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” — Fred DeVito  This quote encompasses my desire to tackle challenges as stepping stones for self-improvement. The idea of recognizing a hard task as a way to grow rather than as a burden resonates with me. In my daily routine, I try to embrace tasks that I find difficult, knowing that even if I fail, I will learn something regardless.
