Ruoshan began volunteering with ICEA during her junior year at Harvard-Westlake School. After dedicating two years to volunteering, she was admitted to Berkeley University in 2022. She is passionate about the intersection of computer science, entrepreneurship, and biomedical research. She is the only high school intern at the Kuhn-Hicks Lab of USC, where she uses machine learning algorithms and single cell microscopy to research cancer cell morphology and gene alteration. She is the co-founder of innovaTEEN, an online platform dedicated to supporting high school entrepreneurs by helping them connect to potential business partners. Ruoshan is also the co-CEO of Whistle, an app that serves as a support system for sexual assault victims by connecting them to hotlines, shelters, and online support forums. At school, she is the president of Girls Who Code, Red Cross, Best Buddies, and HW HOSA, Consulting Director for HW Venture, and a Features Editor for the Pacemaker-winning Harvard-Westlake Chronicle. She initialized “Kids Can Code!” for all kids who want to learn coding and have fun with coding, which is an 8-week tech entrepreneurship program sponsored by I.C.E.A. Incubator for Kids.
