Christopher Cao

Christopher is an 11th grade student at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA. Impressively, Christopher was named a “Young Wonder” by CNN and the Northern Virginian of the Year by Northern Virginia Magazine. Christopher’s biggest talent is computer building a programming, which comes as no surprise that he would like to be a project manager for a large technology firm when he gets older. Christopher is the founder and CEO of Reboot for Youth, an organization dedicated to refurbishing computers. In the Washington, D.C. area alone, Reboot for Youth has assisted over 300 children in over 30 schools. Christopher also volunteers for Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education (GIVE) and is one of three representatives on the Fairfax County Student Human Rights Commission (FCSHRC).
