Carnegie Mellon University
Braden Lee is a native of the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Currently, he attends Iolani high school as a senior. Despite the distinction typically drawn between the humanities and STEM, he finds himself intrigued by both, pursuing both Computer Engineering and Political Science degrees. His extracurricular involvement reflects this, serving as both a leadership council member for the Iolani Model United Nations team and a programming mentor for the Iolani FIRST Robotics team. As an Eagle Scout, Braden has worked intimately with the community, most recently collaborating with his troop to deliver bookshare structures and literature to native Hawaiian communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Above all, he believes in the ability of technology to connect. Braden hopes that he can apply modern innovations to solve contemporary issues through engineering.
