Student Spotlight Interview: Kevin (UCLA)
Kevin Tan
Kevin is a recent UCLA Computer Science graduate currently working as a software engineer at the startup Raya. Kevin was given the opportunity to create his own course in 4th year and teach it. It was so popular that there was a waitlist for students to take it. The UCLA faculty were so impressed by the course, they made it a permanent course starting fall 2020. Kevin’s private school journey of “finding the right fit” led him from Pickering College to University of Toronto Schools (UTS) and then he transitioned back to Pickering College until grade 11. He then attended Neuchatel College in Switzerland for grade 12 while taking numerous AP exams offered at the college. Kevin was a previous PrepSkills student for both the SSAT and SAT prep. Outside of work, his hobbies include fitness, piano, and gaming.


In this interview, Kevin reveals how his exploratory educational journey successfully led him to UCLA!:
