Jumpstart Entrepreneur of the Month

Ching-Yi Lin

Ching-Yi LinChing-Yi Lin spent her formative musical life as a talented performer focused on a concert career. While studying at IU, her entrepreneurial spirit was ignited while working with Mimi Zweig and Brenda Brenner, co-directors the Jacobs School’s String Academy. Today, she runs the Western Kentucky University Pre-College Strings Program, the first of its kind for the university. She recently received the prestigious Jefferson Award for Public Service in Washington, D.C., in recognition for her work in bringing music into the lives of young people throughout her community.

“I get to engage in almost every aspect of music,” says Dr. Lin of her work with the program. “With all of these different roles, my most important guiding principle is to stay flexible.” Project Jumpstart recently spoke with Dr. Lin about the choices and opportunities that led to her work at Western Kentucky, as well as her thoughts on mixing performance, education, entrepreneurship, and outreach to craft a vibrant and varied life in the arts.
