My life’s mission is to impact as many lives as possible. I currently study Software Engineering and I am heart and soul committed to entrepreneurship! I’m in the process of creating an app and website called ‘Move’. Move stands for an event and ‘Movement’ is a business or group that hosts events. The application includes features that allow users to locate local events, events that people the user’s age are participating in, and hosts in which other users are actively connecting. As a kid who spent too much of his childhood indoors playing video games, I have regrets which have inspired me to want to help adolescents and young adults get out of the house. Life is too short and I want people to cherish the few moments we have on this Earth by taking advantage of the events in their area. I cannot wait to help my community and grow the application to save the next generation from spending countless hours inside Facebooking. I think an application that gets people off their butts and into their community should be embraced because society’s slowly fading away from human interaction. We need to face to face interaction not screen name to screen name interaction! Overall, I feel that my life is not about me; I feel that I am here to serve others. In the future, I will judge my success on how many others’ I make successful in the process. Thank you for your consideration. Together let’s move the nation!
