Regina Ye ’18 majors in computer science and is pursuing a Nexus concentration in global business. Her favorite place to relax and unwind on campus? The Equestrian Center, where the horses teach so much about leadership and life — it’s all about team spirit and balance. As a passionate traveler who hails from China and loves exploring the world, Ye’s guilty pleasure is buying more beauty products than she could ever consume. After returning from a trip to Texas for a tech conference, and finding that her shampoo had spilled all over the contents of her suitcase, she decided that enough was enough. It was time to innovate the travel-beauty game. One year after assembling a team and developing a product, Ye is ready to launch the ZIRUI Go case.
As I clicked the “Launch Project Now” button, the Kickstarter website for my creation went live. I sat back in my chair and thought about how my journey to this moment — the launch of my ZIRUI Go Case — all started.
