The thing that I love to do the most is computer programming. It allows you to express yourself and bring a completely unique idea into reality by simply writing a few lines of code. Computer programming is the process of writing a list of commands that the computer executes in order to create a new piece of software that solves a particular problem. My long term dream is to create my own software development company that sales software which solves real world problems such as medical illnesses and poor education around the world. Currently I am working on an Android application that allows college students to easily share their notes and other lecture material with each other.
Education is truly the key to a more perfect world. If more people had access to quality education then we would see global issues like poverty, hunger, and disease all become a thing of the past. I’m not talking about a global curriculum that should be taught to the entire world, no. I’m talking about providing a system that allows anyone to find their true passion and access quality knowledge and information about it. This system will also implement social features that will allow anyone to have direct access to actual professionals in their field of interest, who are also using the service. This is just one of the applications that my software company will be developing over the next few years to help improve the world.
