Joe Guan

Hi, my name is Joe Guan and I am a Sophomore at East Brunswick High School and President of Code on the Student Leadership Committee. I am very excited to be able to lead a part of the Student Leadership Committee and experience everything that Junior Achievement has to offer! I love to play video games and tennis, but most importantly I love to learn more about the world of code and extend my knowledge to others who are willing to learn!

Hi, my name is Aditya Reddy and I am a senior at Piscataway High School. I’m extremely excited to be working with JA again this year as the President of PR. Outside of JA, I am an FBLA State Officer. I love to play sports, especially tennis. I like being outside and surrounded by nature. I love to hike, go rock climbing, and many activities on the water, like jet skiing or scuba diving. I look forward to meeting all of you!


Aveek Mishra

Co President of Code

My name is Aveek Mishra , and I am currently a junior at East Brunswick High School. I have a lot of passion for technology and computer science, so over the last year, I have helped with many HackJA and crack the code events in the past. Hackathons are a great place for beginners to learn more about code, and veterans to polish their skills. I’m excited to help with this year’s HackJA.
