Alexander Lin is more than just a teenager interested in computers — he transformed his passion for technology into a cause that helps provide kids in his community and around the world access to computers, while at the same time creating a sustainable way to manage the disposal of electronic waste. Lin, 16, designed a computer donation and refurbishment program in his hometown of Westerly, R.I., and has established computer centers around the world. Under his guidance, more than 300 computers have been refurbished and donated to local students, and seven media centers have been established in the United States, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Cameroon, Kenya and the Philippines.
