College2Career Event #4–UC Berkeley Computer Science Major Rising Senior Student Interview

By inviting guest speakers with different career backgrounds and in different age groups, the LMC College2Career program aims to provide high schoolers an opportunity to gain insights into real-world careers so that they could better identify their true career passion, select college majors that suit their own interests, and facilitate their future career development. From the stories of our guest speakers, we learn together how to achieve personal goals while serving our community at the same time.

On June 26th, Bailing Hou invited Zizheng Cheng, a CS-major rising senior at UC Berkeley, to speak with us about about his college life and his application experience. Zizheng graduated from Bellevue High School in 2019, and he served 3 years in Bellevue High’s class council and 1 year in the ASB. He was also the debate co-lead on his school’s speech and debate team. In the summer of 2020 and 2021, Zizheng interned at Amazon in the Alexa speech team, and he is currently interning at Roblox’s content platform team We are honored to have Zizheng share his amazing experiences and hope that this workshop will be helpful to high schoolers.
