Simply put, I am tired of seeing people live their life with tunnel vision. The daily grind of a nine to five job, paying the bills by going to work so much that you barely enjoy the luxuries you are paying for: it needs to stop. This is why my dream is to create a technology that will innovate its field and show others that the conventional methods of living is not all it is cracked up to be. Specifically, I hope to innovate the technology field through computer programming and engineering, similar to what Elon Musk has done with the Tesla and the automobile industry. After this, I plan to not stop there, but to continue innovating different fields, while traveling and teaching young minds that the conventional methods of living life are NOT the only way; that life outside the comfort zone is so much more fulfilling; that going to a different state in the United States is not considered traveling; that if I, the one in the million, could change the world, then so can the next person. I will change the world for the better, whether it be making people more tolerant through the internet, gearing humanity more towards space expedition, innovating medical technology in order to better understand the human body, working towards robotics and artificial intelligence, or anything throughout the entire technological spectrum. The world will feel my presence, it will know who I am. I will NOT be “just another person.”
