Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am a sophomore in Computer Science Major at Montgomery College. Virtual and augmented reality has been the future for me ever since I got my first headset. A sensational experience that has captivated my attention since Virtual Reality software development has been something that I’ve researched and practiced for years. I’ve made strides in my own VR development projects using software called Unity, as well as creating my own games and simulations. My love for VR also recently influenced me to start the process of creating my own company, with aspirations to advance learning environments whether they are virtual or in-person. When I joined my high school's National Academy of Finance, I strived to develop the necessary skills to implement my dreams of creating a VR classroom setting into reality. Furthermore, I was accepted into the Early College Program at Montgomery College, an opportunity that I used to further my computer science education and gain the necessary skills to execute my dream. During my second year of Early College, I was able to join the Southern Management Program, a three-year scholarship and educational program that supports, develops, and creates leaders and future entrepreneurs. It was through this program that I truly started to visualize and create a plan for my own learning-development company, Sage VR. The plan is for Sage to create its own VR and AR educational software, portals, and headsets. Virtual Reality will make more of an impact than the smartphone ever did, and is already a rapidly growing industry; the technology is expanding and improving constantly. I see a future where this machinery is used in every classroom for vocational training and simulation of standard education, while also offering an engaging and exciting way of learning. I know that with these ideas and with my ambition, creating an online culture where every student can succeed is something that I think many would look forward to in the near future, Jason.
