Biography

I was first exposed to the world of technology at the tender age of 5. At such a young age, I had no idea what the internet and its vast resources had to offer, and so I began my exploration. I saw how technology was used to connect us, how it's used to reach out to addicts, connect gaming communities, allow free expression via video formats, and even the simple ability to open up group invitation possibilities. All of these are great connectors and help people throughout society. We have many platforms to help different kinds of people. I want to explore how technology can connect us even more. At the same time, I saw technology becoming more and more integral within society, becoming the main solution in fixing many problems. I strive to explore how technology can answer and solve some of society's major issues.

In my spare time, I am obsessed with reading, writing and volunteering. If there’s any where to help, I’ll be there. From three years old to now, I still have yet to fully explore what technology has to offer. I can’t wait to use this scholarship to reach the limit of technology!
