2013 Young Achiever Reunion

CIE’s DFW chapter successfully hosted the first Young Achiever Reunion on Saturday, August 10, at the Hyatt Hotel in Richardson, Texas. Dr. Lu kicked off the organization. CIE Young Achiever is a group of young professionals, college, and pre-college students who seek professional development, engage in community involvement, promote CIE’s interests, and represent motivated young individuals ready to develop their careers.


Over 40 people attended to the event, including 16 from this year’s recipients, 27 from previous years and a few prospective YA. During the event, Wen-Shin Wang, a recipient of YAA in 2004, gave a keynote speech on promoting diversification and one’s value as a potential employee. Afterward, Alex Zhang moderated a lively panel discussion featuring Kevin Chen, Miri Shidate, Janet Zhou, Kimberley Yu, and Angela Fu over a variety of topics including college applications, networking, conflict resolution, and principles of success. Participants took this opportunity to understand the premise of Young Achiever and learn more about how to better succeed in the real world.


“I am glad as the founder of DFW chapter to kick off the Young Achiever Association. This is the first time we are inviting our prior and current Young Achievers back being united,” Dr. Lu said. “CIE DFW emphasizes our next generation of engineers.  This is the reason why DFW chapter initiated the Young Achiever Award back in the 1990s for those students who showed promises and potentials in alignment with CIE DFW’s mission to promote the exchange of information among various fields of engineers and scientists who are interested in the well-being of the Chinese engineering.”


“We believe, YOU, our Young Achievers, are with positive attitude and inspiration,  will be successful in your academic and professional career. Specifically, we expect our Young Achievers continue to involve in the community and to demonstrate your leadership and passion, also to utilize your engineering disciplines and skills to contribute through the CIE network, and to the DFW community".
