Bio

A Chinese native, Jim (Depeng) Jin studies Psychology and Economics at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. At school, he is heavily involved with Vanderbilt Alternative Spring Break, a student organization that sends over 400 students every year to 30 + service sites across America and the world. In 2013, Jim, Shilpa, Maryli and Whitley co-started the project Sustainabears, aiming at reducing polystyrene foam waste and educate the future generation of the importance of environmental sustainability through Teddy Bears. As a part-time artist, Jim enjoys putting up large-scale art installations in unsuspected places.
