What areas do you specialize in? (ex: Creative writing, web development, finance, activism, etc.)

Brainstorming, Marketing, Building, Relations

Talk about a time where you organized/built/created something.

Over the course of a summer, I worked to build a “proof of concept” prototype for one of my ideas. While the prototype did accomplish what I intended but showed lack of potential for continuation, I actually found that the process behind brainstorming, sketching, financing, building, and ultimately determining viability, was just as significant as completion of the project, especially in my development as an individual and in my endeavors.

What is something you've learned related to your specializations, and what are your thoughts on it?

For marketing, a skill that I have gained, and am currently developing, is customer relatability. This allows me to determine if a product can be viable, especially where and with who. This enables me to determine how the customer might treat or view a product. In order to do this, I am able to gain the perspective of being in the customer’s position, seeing what they like or could use, and go from there.

What are your passions, and how do you engage with them?

I have so many ideas that I am so passionate about, and my goal is to implement each into reality. Everyday I work to research and explore, building upon ideas that I have come up with, and creating new ones as well. This has led to around 800 pages of my own handwritten work of annotations, drawings and developments. And my passion lies in working to make each page happen, especially if it has the added bonus of benefitting the world.

Have you applied to Startup Shell before?No
Why do you want to join Startup Shell?

I want to join Startup Shell because of each and every page. I believe that each idea that I have has potential, and the only way to make them happen is to meet like-minded individuals who have started or are in the process of starting their own endeavors. These people, and events/resources, associated with a mentality like mine will not only motivate me, but will make what I got a reality. Startup Shell has a lot to offer in that regard, and I am willing to work and learn to benefit from it.
