Jie Wang, originally from Guam, is an undergraduate senior at Duke University majoring in computer science and economics. She became interested in computer science as a way to simplify analysis and scrape data efficiently because she had many questions about the financial industry. On campus, she is the Co-CEO of her chapter of Smart Woman Securities, an organization that seeks to empower a new generation of female investors. Jie believes that gender should not stop one from pursuing one’s interests and dreams.
“I’ve accidentally stumbled upon a lot of things in my life, whether it be a major or favorite hobby, simply because I love to try new things. I believe that we should all step out of our comfort zone and do something new every so often — you never know what will happen.”
