Hey, I'm Chia. I'm a nineteen-year-old CS & Art student at Yale, from Manila. I create initiatives and products that build the world: the browser is my canvas.
At Developh, I accelerate & invest in youth-led innovation for good across Southeast Asia. On-campus, I do creative research at the CCAM, support student-led startups, & create at User Experience Society—Yale's design organization & consultancy.
