Pinewood High School, Los Altos Hills
Mingbo is the co-founder of SilkRoad, a non-profit organization promoting Asian culture, raising money for people in need, and developing education opportunities in third world countries. The Green Ribbon Project is the major fundraising component of SilkRoad and has raised money for a two-room elementary school in Bali and collected 50 used/new laptops donated to Kenya to name a few. To promote Asian cultural awareness, Mingbo created a haiku contest and received over 500 entries from high school students with the winners receiving gift certificates to local Asian businesses. Mingo will be attending the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.
