Steven Chun grew up in Chicago and graduated from Hinsdale Central High School. At Dartmouth, Steven is pursuing majors in Computer Science and Economics.

During his First-Year Fellowship, Steven interned at the Truman National Security Project under the mentorship of Michael Breen. As Steven puts it, "There are few experiences like being in D.C., but being a part of the Truman organization and being in D.C. exceeded every expectation I had."

For the first time in his experience, government was not a framework or theory or even an institution--it was a human enterprise, with human flaws and human brilliance.

Post-graduation, Steven wants to work at the intersection of technology and public interest. "Once you are a part of the issues, it's hard to extract yourself. And I don't intend to."
