Who is part of
The WeChat Project?
While the WeChat Project was founded in June 2020 by a group of second-generation Chinese American college students, our team has since expanded to include immigrant parents, international students, high schoolers, and working professionals. Some of us are Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kongers, non-Chinese Asian, mixed-race, dark-skinned. Some of us grew up in cities, others in suburbs in the United States and around the world.
As we continue to grow in size and scope, we are grounded by a shared interest in connecting with, educating, and learning from others in the Chinese American community. We create content targeted to the specific needs of the audiences we speak to, whether those comprise first-generation Chinese parents on WeChat, second- and later generations of Chinese Americans on Instagram, or Chinese diasporic youth.
