I am Akhil Sachdev, a senior at Dougherty Valley High School, San Ramon, CA.
We live in the Information Age, also referenced as the Computer or Digital Age, in which 47% of the global population has access to the internet. It has significantly influenced the lives of people and global industries by determining how we work, live and learn.
For many years now, I have been energized by the prospect of being a critical innovator in the digital evolution. My readiness is rooted in the humility to learn and help others in the process. I believe that curiosity is the driver for innovation and learning.
Through my passion for technology and the desire to give back, I have enjoyed working on many hands-on projects that include: building my own gaming PC, launching business sites, engaging the community for laptop reconfiguration and donations, and leading a fundraiser for homeless shelters.
