Ever since I was young, I loved creating things. At the age of 3 I would disassemble all of my toys and do something to make them work together, I found it so fun! Unfortunately I lived in a poor country, so the best thing I could get to play with was a bicycle and bits of wood and metal laying around to make new things. Art is also a big part of my life, I've always been the top in class and be my teacher's favourite student, but a piece of paper and some paints just didn't do it for me, I wanted more, I wanted my paints to fill up with microchips and read my mind and just move themselves to recreate what I'm thinking of. When I imagine big, I don't just see a car or a plane, I imagined our planet being consumed by the physical meaning of the word, knowledge. I wanted to know everything and I still do, but with the little time we have to live, I want to make the best of what I have. Some people want money for power, or just to have the most expensive and show off. If I was to have money I'd buy everything I need to create something new... But anyway, this got a little off topic. Due to financial difficulties, my mum moved to England and later on took me with her when I was 13, I started attending an English school straight away and with what seemed like a lot of equipment and materials to work with, my imagination blew! I never in my life seen so many things. To be honest, the school was kind of bad and didn't have much to offer compared to other schools, but I was determined to make the best of it! At first I didn't have many friend, it took me a few months to get along with people and find a friend, but eventually I found a person to talk to and we still talk every day. About 2 years later I discovered 3D modelling programs and found it really fun to make things like circles and cubes, even though I was very bad at it and in between studies, GCSE's and school, I saw some programs I could use to actually model, so I used all of my free time to study them. It got me so excited and eventually my skills improved and I was able to make basic products and incorporate design into things without it taking me 70 hours. Funny enough, when I first started getting into it, I didn't tell myself to go easy, I went straight for a car, without even knowing what a face is. We didn't have internet at the time and so I tried working out everything one by one. About 2 more years later when I turned 17 I wanted to get the most out of life. I decided that I will work hard and start a company before I even enter University! So for the next year I researched as much as I can about business and made dozens of models. Right before I turned 16 I build myself a computer and did a lot of research into that. Now I want to make a company for computer parts. This time, starting off small, but promising. I want to make my company almost entirely community based and make parts based on other people's designs and I still want that to happen. I want to form a community with good people and just make something out of my life, helping others learn how to use specific software, donating to poorer countries and slowly building up to success. I promised I'd never let my customers down and will still communicate with them, face to face if I had to, even if one day I was as big as companies like Apple and Microsoft.... But that's not my real aim, I want to be successful but also respected and respectful. It's June 2015 and I'm 18. I still have a long way to go, but I will succeed. I feel like I can and I will put all my effort into making this world, I tiny bit better. Thank you if you read this for so long, I tried putting down everything that's in my head as short as possible, so thank you :) And for all the opportunities I am given!
