Review of TKS

TKS catalyzed my growth. Year 1 (innovate) exposed me to new sources of content, technologies/sciences, and mindsets that shifted how I think about the world - the people & my place in it. Year 2 (activate) exploited my knowledge gaps and has given me more anger to solve the world's biggest problems. The 1.8+ years I've spent with this program have given me the business, technical knowledge I was seeking.

Before TKS

I spent the summer before TKS working on UConnect, a project focused on bridging the gap between resource disadvantage and capability for high school students, while allowing them to find their perfect school. I was building the social fit algorithm, leading the marketing/operations team, and hustling advisors for our company. I also built Foundations Podcast & grew its reach to 40+ countries, 1K+ listeners.

During TKS

I spent year 1 of tks, working with MIT Media Lab startup - PathCheck - to increase app adoption by 50% in MN. I was curious about quantum computing so I built a project to examine the infrastructure that causes immense road congestion + optimized traffic lights for better traffic flow. I trained the skill of fireside chats by interviewing the CEO of Tonal (a unicorn company with LeBron James as an influencer).

After TKS

Spent the summer working with BenchSci to scale their growth through clinical trials, spoke at the Massachusetts State Science Fair on extended reality to help students ideate on their projects. I interned at MetaVRse where I developed v.1 and v.2 of Unity College's XR Course for professionals. I spent some time working with multi-billion dollar clients on employee training tools in XR. Ran daily stand-ups, aligned with client on needs assessment, and worked with technical team to deliver experience. I began year 2 prototyping an augmented reality experience for fans of the Seattle Kraken, worked on a search engine to aggregate EEG correlates from research papers most relevant to a psychiatrist so they can reduce misdiagnosis. Now, I'm developing curriculum & technology to educate 27.9M elementary school students in Nigeria.
