To an average person, computer programming looks like rocket science. But to me programming is just problem solving no different than what you face in your normal life. You need to be able to analyze a problem, weigh your options, and try your best to implement the best solution. Computer programing is something I am very passionate about because it is one of the few things that puts my brain into overdrive mode. My love for problem solving stemmed from a childhood full of video games and I learned to code on the internet. If I could do something I love for a living, I think I’d spend my time solving the problem of education by utilizing all the skills I have. After seeing how effective learning online has been for me, I’d like to take it a step further. As a gamer, I know that not all games are useless experiences and some can be really fulfilling and rewarding. I’d love to spend my time programming games to help aid in education. Creating games that are fun and engaging for kids but also full of useful learning topics such as math or history could be invaluable for future generations. And I’m ready for the challenge. I know what games are fun, how to code it, and I love to code. Leaving an impression on the world is a goal I believe everyone should have and my personal calling is to accelerate education in a fun and creative way.
