Ever since I was very young I loved to work with computers. I would often end up helping my teachers or my parents to figure out some problem that they had with their computer. Although my absolute favorite thing to do is play video games. I also enjoy making video games. This is what I want to do when I graduate from college. I am currently studying computer science at Sam Houston State University. Although I want to start out by programming and creating my own video games, I eventually want to create programs that can help people with disabilities, such as hearing, or vision impairments.
I start my computer science classes this coming semester. My plan after I graduate from college is to attempt to get a job as a freelance programmer. I eventually want to get a job with a video game company. Many of my friends are also taking computer science classes in college. Our plan is to start our own video game company. I later plan to expand into other types of programs.
I hope to change the world with my programs. I not only want to create fun and imaginative video games, I also want to use technology to help improve the lives of those with disabilities. Being a survivor of childhood cancer, I want other people with disabilities to be able to live a normal life, and technology can help with that.
