You are a natural thinker with a keen sense of logic, patience, communication, and attention to detail.


You work well under pressure and don’t panic when complex situations arise. By breaking things down into manageable pieces and utilizing the tools at hand, you can always accomplish your goals. You are good at learning from past experiences in success and failures to make better decisions in the future. Activities you might find intriguing: design and execute projects, build constructive plans, bring and challenge creative thoughts, solve puzzles, and adapt to changes and new technologies.

Critical Thinker @ Hitch2049

Zheyuan Wu, class of 2020, Yali School


Zheyuan Wu is a Hitch2049 VVIP alum from Hunan Province, China, and was accepted to the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis, one of the US private research universities known as the Hidden Ivy League. In 2020, Zheyuan started taking the Hitch2049 AI curriculum with zero Python coding background. But he discovered that he enjoys computer science and especially computer games. With extensive training under Hitch2049 faculty, he attended the ROAR S1-series competition in the same year with his school teammates. He won Second Place in the overall ranking and a special award of Fastest Single Lap, beating even some undergraduate student teams from UC Berkeley. His success in learning further motivated him to become a TA volunteer to coach other junior students from his high school alma mater to get into learning AI early in their careers. Zheyuan’s dedication to research and his talents demonstrated through the ROAR competition persuaded Washington University in St. Louis to extend their invitation to continue his study in his dream major of Computer Science.
