Chunqing Cao


Integrations Engineer

What did you do before you came to Alight? 

I’m a recent graduate of the University of Iowa. I’ve also been an active volunteer. When I was in college, I was part of an organization called Heart Workshop, which provides an environment to support international students’ mental health. I also volunteered at an animal shelter, and I helped low-income people prepare their tax returns. 

What do you like to do when you aren’t at work? 

I like watching shows from different countries — American, Chinese, Japanese, Thailand, etc. I also like playing with my dog and helping her lose weight.

People are always surprised to learn that you … 

I studied violin for almost eight years until I was 16 years old. 

What’s one book that you think everyone should read? 

“Fluent Python.” Just kidding!

I really like “The Little Prince.” I’ve read it once when I was a kid. At that time, I thought it was really boring. But, when I read it recently, I felt that some parts of that story can only be understood after growing up.

Who do you admire? 

I admire lots of people. I really want to become one of those people who raise stray and homeless pets.

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? 

Definitely learn new skills. I want to be a YouTuber in the future. Or maybe I need to pick up my violin again!
