Hannah Chung

With a background in engineering and art, 22-year-old Chung is passionate about making the world a better place. That passion led her to develop Jerry the Bear (co-designed with Aaron Horowitz), a cuddly robotic and interactive educational toy for children living with Type I diabetes. The next few months will be busy for the duo. They’re taking Jerry the Bear to Betaspring Incubator in February in Providence, Rhode Island, and the toy will soon be used in clinical trials. Previously Chung co-founded Design for America, an award-winning national student-led initiative that uses design to solve social problems. DFA has expanded to eight universities, raised over $300,000 and landed on the cover of Fast Company magazine (Inc.’s sister publication).
