Some of the experiences I've had this month.

World's Biggest Problems

This month I had the opportunity to work with Jaden Smith's nonprofit called 501CTHREE. Me and my team were tasked with creating a recommendation to one of their problems regarding the clean water crisis in the US. Check out our deck explaining the problem, our solution, and the impact!

Talk with Cyrus Irani

This month I was also able to talk with Cyrus Irani, better know as Apple's Head of Human Interface. From this talk, the one thing i took away was "trust that your unique interests combined with your inherent skills will lead you to a better future." Don't worry about "work hard, play hard" as the most successful work is play.

🧠 Mindset

This month's mindset is "On the Ball." The whole idea revolves around getting things done as efficiently as possible. Check out the video to learn more, and some of my tips and tricks!
