Zhengze (Neil) Jia is originally from Wuhan, China. He came to the US five years ago. He has a background in journalism and mass communication and double majored in Art Design at the University of Iowa. The field of Journalism shares a lot with social innovation. Neil would love to communicate with people to find out what problems they have, and help them to solve it with design thinking. Neil always reminds himself to see through appearance to perceive essence as a journalist, and will do the same as a social designer. For now, he’s trying to switch the role of problem-seeker to problem-solver.
