The 21-year-old tech guru has accomplished many incredible feats, including being responsible for algorithms that have made Uber, Instagram and Snapchat what they are today. From encouraging the study of STEM subjects in schools and at higher levels, Sandu, in 2017, collaborated with rapper Nipsey Hussle to create the Marathon Clothing Store, a smart store that offers exclusive music and other content to customers who have downloaded an app. The award-winning software engineer considers himself a “cultural architect” who aims to “level the playing field” between Silicon Valley and young communities of colour.
