In the Alibaba Global Math Competition, Jiang finished 12th out of thousands of participants, securing her place among 801 global finalists for the final test.

The qualifying round, which lasted 48 hours, included multiple-choice and essay-length questions. Notably, no AI teams made it to the finals.

Jiang’s unexpected success has garnered widespread support, with a hashtag about her receiving 17 million views on social media. Her achievement has inspired comments about the potential of underdogs and the beauty of mathematics.

Jiang’s performance has impressed Chinese universities, with Zhejiang University praising her on social media. The final results, which could award winners up to $30,000, will be announced in August. Jiang expressed her love for advanced math, calling it a hobby that fuels her curiosity.

Fans have shown their support by visiting her parents’ home with gifts, and local shopping malls have displayed her picture. Jiang’s teacher, who ranked 125th in the contest, had encouraged her to participate, believing in her potential for a different future.

Although she could have attended a more academically rigorous high school, Jiang chose her vocational school to stay with her sister and friends. She now plans to pursue higher education in math alongside fashion design. The competition, open to all math enthusiasts since 2018, included AI teams for the first time this year.

Jiang remains committed to her passion for math, regardless of her future plans.
