I am passionate aboutAs a computer engineer, I can safely say that my passion for learning in all of its various forms has been the primary driving factor in my personal development. Because learning can be thought of as "exercises for the brain," I like to subdivide it into four main categories that make up a balanced workout; executive brain function, visual-spatial, language, and memory. Due to the nature of my job, I spend most of my time developing executive brain function, which includes learning new ways to approach engineering problems and developing innovative algorithms to solve them. In my free time I enjoy drawing, painting, and modeling miniatures. Now that I have finished college and am in a specialized field, reading and language development are no longer a formal part of my daily activity. I try to fill this void with creative fiction writing. I additionally attend a weekly class at "The Institute for the Study of Western Civilization" which gives me extra incentive to improve my memory and continue to learn historical facts. No matter how much wisdom, knowledge, and intelligence a person has however, it is useless unless they share it. I am excited that the "One Young World" summit is the perfect venue for young adults around the world to share what they have learned with others, and help to achieve a brighter future.
ActionsI am currently writing a research project for "The Institute for the Study of Western Civilization" concerning: the evolution of individualism from ancient Greece to the modern era, and its impact on the young social media driven generation-Y (Echo Boomers). My senior thesis project in college focused on achieving real time ray tracing effects using GPGPU (General-purpose computing on graphics processing unit) acceleration.
